Sue at the Metal Bridge

By johnriley1uk  
A shot using a 70-300mm lens makes the point that very long lenses can actually be quite flattering for portraits. The eyes have it, as always, but the bokeh does tend to be better as well. This was shot at the metal bridge over the Bridgewater Canal at Worsley.

An excellent straight-on family portrait. The telephoto lens does give a very narrow DOF, therefore throwing the background well out-of-focus. Great range of tones and very pleasing pose.

I agree with you, John. With the strong booked, telephoto lenses do work well for portraits for that very reason. Was there a question?

Lovely portrait... Strong eye contact.
