Shut­ter speeds be­low about 1/125 sec are usu­ally a no-no for por­traits, be­cause it can be hard to keep both the sub­ject and the cam­era still. How­ever, if there’s in­ter­est­ing move­ment in the scene, like fall­ing snow, a slower shut­ter speed is worth a go – at 1/30 sec, as in step 03, the slightly blurred snow adds to the mood of the shot. The sub­ject and cam­era need to stay as still as pos­si­ble, so use a tri­pod and ask the sub­ject to sit as still as they can. To get a slower shut­ter speed in daylight you’ll need to use the low­est avail­able ISO, and you may need to stop down the aper­ture – we used f/8.
