Canon 85mm f / 1.4 L IS USM lens price and one of Canon’s newest portrait lenses. Capturing the inner world of the character in the portrait; It is very important to photograph it in harmony with the right pose in the space and light reflecting its character. So the most important thing in the portrait is the content you create. But combining the content you create with the right technique is just as important. Even if everything is correct, the wrong focal length can completely affect the effect of the photo.
We said that the closest focal length to the eye is 50mm. So why take a portrait 50mm We do not use? The reason for this is this. To get close to someone, you need to know him better. For example, you will not be standing under someone you do not have a close relationship with, for example. You can understand this better if you internalize it with the things you live in life. 85mm allows us to take a closer look at the person in front of us and to communicate. For example, there is about 10 seconds between seeing the uncle and taking a picture before the photo above. There is a certain distance between us. I must catch him in his natural state, without moving away from the moment he lives, that is, without posing for me. The best lens I can do is 85mm.
Imagine chatting with someone at a table, leaning back. And imagine that both people are sitting with their elbows on the table closer and focused. Even these positions show that you are trying to get to know the other person better. That is exactly what it can achieve in 85mm, that is, it allows you to be close to someone intellectually, though not physically. Without much in the frame, you focus on the model’s face and eyes and try to catch the right moment. In this photo, Omar is busy lifting the drone. We have a short time and the weather is really cold. It is within the stress of getting the most accurate image in a short time. So he focused on his work. At that time, I am busy capturing his right moment. He can raise his head to look at the drone at any moment. So I took my camera in series and waited, because the net speed was very good, one of the 5 photos I took was exactly what I wanted. Although I knew Ömer very well, I saw someone I never imagined in this photo. Maybe a Hun Emperor who had gone through the same place at the time 🙂 Or can someone else be an Eskimo?
The background will shrink at 85mm, so as if you are listening to your best friend in a totally focused way, you will be away from everything that distracts and focus completely on the person you draw. Can you look at the look of İlayda? There is nothing distracting in the photograph except for that look. The portrait allows you to communicate with him even if there is a dull moment before you. Imagine how many people in your life are in the eye with 5-6 seconds of focus.
The right moment is so important. You need to be ready for anything technical. If the photo occurs milliseconds earlier than you guessed, you may miss the net or the correct exposure. Therefore, we need a serial product. The new 85mm has a very fast focus. If your camera is also successful in burst shooting, you can record all those moments. In this photo, we come to Tuz Lake from where we stopped for drone shooting. A girl caring for souvenirs with her mother. I’m sure I won’t see her again. But I was able to capture a moment from the back of the shelf that he was really excited and happy. Very closely. No need to look through the viewfinder. There is a very nice feeling in this photo. There are different colors in order in the background. What is clear is this sweet friend who holds a colorful toy, but is actually spiritually white. Portrait allows you to share emotions with people you never know.
Also, sitting at the computer and seeing the net in your favorite photo can make you depressed. For this reason, a new feature has been introduced, which is not in previous portrait lenses: the image stabilizer. In fact, these are the two main reasons why we praise the new lens so much. Fast focus and image stabilizer. These 2 features were not available at 85 f / 1.4, Canon’s budget-friendly solution for portrait, and 85 / 1.2. I took the older sister in this photo while driving by her. The vehicle was slow, but at this level it is really hard to be able to take a sharp, sharp photo on the move. Being a stabilizer gave me a good surprise, as I never guessed. I was sure this photo wasn’t clear. But the result really impressed me.
And, as you all know, the lowest aperture is 1.4. So, as in the photo above, I can completely delete the background. This ensures that the subject is fully focused. To summarize, if you want to take a portrait at a professional level, it is a great lens that is not budget friendly for those who say that your photos should not be burned, most of them are clear, do not miss the net even when on the move, or even get the light like crazy at night, but definitely the photographer can trust a hundred percent. We definitely recommend it. By the way, if you say portrait, if you are interested in the lens but want to get information about the portrait, I leave the video that I tell you about the portrait tips. See you again.
