Neil’s kit for portraits
“I use the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and PEN F cameras most of the time. For those Micro Four Thirds bodies there are some wonderful portrait lenses and I often use the Olympus ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, Olympus 17mm f/1.8 and Leica DG 25mm f/1.4 ASPH. I also use the Leica SL on occasion, but as I only have manual focus M lenses for that body, like the Leica M 35mm 1.4 ASPH, I only use it in the kind of circumstances where I have more time to work.”
Above When the location is an interesting one you can shoot at a higher f/number for more depth-of-field and frame your subjects using elements in the scene. Left Although nearly full length, the f/1.7 aperture setting here blurs the backdrop.
