Focal length comparison for portraits

Prime Creator

I thought I would share this comparison I did with a friend for a presentation I did for Sony and B&H.

This is how different focal lengths look with similar framing for portraits. The f/stop was f/5.6 on all of them. The portrait subject stayed in the same place, I moved progressively back to keep the framing similar as I used longer focal lengths. This was done with the 12-24/4 G, the 24-105/G and the 100-400 GM

This is such a fantastic visual comparison! I can definitely notice the bokeh and blur with the longer focal length. I never knew how much the 12mm could warp a portrait up that close. Very interesting!

I'm glad it was helpful!
