You also need a tripod for environmental portraits in which the foreground requires sharp focus through the background. Deep depth of field requires a small aperture, and a small aperture, in turn, requires a slower shutter speed to maintain the correct exposure in your scene. Tripods come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s important to choose one that stabilizes your camera and is easy to use. A dSLR camera and a long lens can be heavy, so a heavier tripod is necessary to balance the weight and ensure a stable platform.

You can build your lens collection over time to include the basic options and perhaps add other unusual lenses for a completely unique effect in your images. It’s important to understand that different types of lenses affect how you approach your subject and the resulting image: ■ Zoom lenses. Zoom lenses have a range of focal lengths (for example, 24-70mm) and allow you to quickly increase or decrease your lens focal length, including more or less of your scene, in seconds, without changing your physical distance to your subject.

Keep in mind that I am using these focal lengths as general examples — to be completely technically correct, a 50mm lens approximates the perspective of the human eye when used with a full-frame sensor camera. If you are using a cropped-frame APS-C sensor camera, you need to use a 30-35mm lens to achieve this effect. A telephoto lens technically can range from 60 to 1000mm, but a common telephoto zoom lens example is 70-300mm. A telephoto lens is similar to a telescope; it magnifies your subject and narrows your field of view.
