EOS RebelT6 1300D lense

Which lense is best to have "person" shot, fill the entire screen for printing?

I have EFS 18-55mm and 75-300mm. Neither will do that.

Re: Eos RebelT6 1300D lense

Whichever one works.

 

For portraits of faces 50mm is recommended for crop frame cameras like your T6.

 

Other wise, it depends on how big the subject is, and how far away you are.

 

I used my 60mm macro for snowflakes:

but they were too small to fill the frame.

Please only one thread per issue.  Other thread for this here.

Re: Eos RebelT6 1300D lense

In the other thread you started (now linked to this one), you state that you have both an 18-55 and 75-300 but nothing works.

 

Can you explain what specifically you are trying? Can you show an example?

 

While you don't have 20mm worth of focal lengths, that's not going to prohibit you from taking head shots, head/shoulder, half-body, three-quarter or full body images.

Re: Eos RebelT6 1300D lense

Full body shots. Unfortunately, I have no examples. I want to print an image of a person

without "shrinking" the body's width to a "stick" figure. I cannot figure out how to use 

Photoshop to do that.

Thx

Sorry, I'm not following at all.  So this isn't a "figure out what lens to use" issue, it's what to do in Photoshop?

 

You'll really need to provide a screenshot at least showing what the issue is.

Two suggestions:

Crop in Photoshop.

 

Turn the camera sideways.

so instead of this aspect:

IMG_8413.jpeg

 

You get this one:

Re: Eos RebelT6 1300D lense

not for photoshop. I thought there might be a lense that would allow a photo of a figure

to fill the screen with as little background as possible...I guess it may be a "width" issue,

as the height stays constant...what is a good lense to allow me to get a close-up without

losing the entire body?
