SHOOT­ING ESSEN­TIALS / Cap­ture your joiner images

1 Set the ex­po­sure

A good stock ex­po­sure set­ting for out­door por­traits is: Man­ual mode, shut­ter speed 1/250 sec, aper­ture f/5.6, Auto ISO. This shut­ter speed will freeze the ac­tion, and the wide aper­ture will blur the back­drop. The ISO adapts to suit the light, which is fine in bright, cloudy con­di­tions.

2 Work the an­gles

Take a se­ries of at least 20 shots of the face. Move around slightly as you shoot so that you can cap­ture dif­fer­ent an­gles. You could also try adding va­ri­ety with your fo­cus point – per­haps fo­cus on the clos­est eye in one frame (as above) and the fur­thest eye in the next.
