Why I Love 85mm For Portrait Photography - Video

Recommended Posts

  • Editors

I recently purchased a used Yongnuo 85mm F1.8 as a portrait lens for my Canon 5D full frame. I thought it would be great to share why I love 85mm focal length for general portrait shooting. When I am shooting with my Micro Four Thirds setup, the Olympus 45mm F1.8 is my favourite for portraits, which is very close to 85mm equivalent.
