Whether your shooting classic or candid portraits, fashion magazines or wedding portraits, each Canon portrait lens is designed to match your preferred style and skill level. Using a portrait lens with a wide aperture delivers a shallow depth of field, so the background appears more blurred, which is perfect for a classic composition. For varied shoots, consider the flexible focal length of a zoom lens and be conscious of lighting to ensure you get the best from every shot.
