Portrait photography with Nikon D5600
Step 1. Customize the White Balance
You can customize the white balance of your image after considering the amount of ambient light in your scene. There are several white balance options for you to choose based on the available light you have in the environment.
Nikon D5600 Portrait Settings – white balance auto
Nikon D5600 Portrait Settings – white balance fluorescent
Nikon D5600 Portrait Settings – white balance shade
Nikon D5600 Portrait Settings – white balance incandescent
Step 2. Metering your photo
When clicking on the best portrait images with Nikon D5600, we highly recommend the use of Matrix Metering to all beginners. However, you can use center-weighted Metering, but then you will have to position your subject in the center of the picture, push the shutter button halfway for the camera to focus and measure on the eyes of the subject. Click the AE Lock and recompose your image after concentrating. When you are ready for the photograph, you should completely click the shutter button instead of using the AE Lock.
Step 3. The perfect focus
Set the camera to Single Area AF for accurate focus, and make sure that the area you are focusing on is sharp. A subject’s eyes are the sharpest parts of a portrait. You will have to make sure the focus point is set correctly if your subject is away from the middle. By setting a focus point which is at the farthest end of the focus points, you can do this. Thus, the focus point would correctly fall on your subject when you compose your photograph.
Alternatively, the AF Lock button in the Nikon D5600 can be used to lock the AF point on a particular image field. For confirmation that your subject is in sight, you’ll hear a separate beep. When filming in low light, switching on the Focus Assist Lamp.
Step 4. Choice of lens
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200MM f/4-5.6G ED
Tamron 16-300 F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro
Nikon AfFxNikkor 50mm F/1.8d Prime Lens
You would like to use a zoom lens or a telephoto lens with a focal length of between 50mm and 200mm for a portrait. Set the focal length to 60mm, 85mm, 105mm or 200mm with the lens of your choosing. In an unflattering way, a wide-angle lens such as the 18-55 lens can distort the face of your topic. An excessively long 300 mm focal length would compress the face of your subject and not look normal.
