5 Tips for Shooting People with Your Digital SLR

Use creative lens effects.

This shot used a tilt-shift lens. It was a completely spontaneous moment. Normally, this might have looked nice, but the camera was equipped with a very unique type of lens. The camera was tilted at an odd angle, which throws most of the photo out of focus. The central region is good, however, which makes it work in this case.

Normally, people use tilt-shift lenses for landscapes, not people. The moral of the story? Use what you have in any and every situation. You never know what you’ll come up with.

Settings: f/2.8, 1/50 second, ISO 400, 80mm focal length, APS-C.
