What’s up everyone? My name is Sal Cincotta and today we are doing a stylized fashion portrait shoot with the Canon RF 35mm lens.

All right, so we’ve got this really cool setup going on today, but I’m going to use one lens the 35mm RF/1.8. And so this is a very fast lens. It’s going to fast focus, but it’s also a macro so I can get up to a half a foot for its minimum focus distance so we can get in super tight, create those portraits. But it’s a great all around lens.

Now, a lot of you think, I don’t want to go wide angle for portraits. It’s going to skew some things, but used the right way, you can create some really interesting looks and we can get full body come in and get beauty portraits and tighter shots as well, because this is a macro.

And so we’ve got this incredible set that we’re using, it’s stylized. We’ve got Violet back there. I think she was checking herself out in the mirror the entire time. It’s a really, really cool set. So we’re just going to work around it, but I’m shooting everything wide open in natural light. Really to create a mood. I’m using a reflector to fill some light there, but I think you’re going to like what we get. So let’s get to it.

I’m getting this really killer flare. Love this. So now I’m able to work that. What I’m going to do now is I’m going to turn on this light  and this might cast some warm tones on her. We get this kind of candelabra.

Now I’m able to get this kind of look with everything going blurry, shooting through the crystals, because I’m shooting at 1.8 and so close to the lens.

Another great shoot. Hopefully you guys loved it. Really, really powerful lens to be able to move in and out. Full body to the tight. The macro is impressive. You’ve seen some of those eye shots, so killer lens to have in your kit. Sub a thousand dollars. And so definitely something that you want to put in your bag as a portrait photographer. It’s going to go a long way for you. We’ll see you in the next video.
