Here's How Focal Length Affects Portraits: 24mm vs 35mm vs 50mm vs 85mm vs 135mm Lenses

Photographer Julia Trotti is out with a revealing new video where she compares portraits shot with her entire arsenal of prime lenses: 24mm vs 35mm vs 50mm vs 85mm vs 135mm. We knew there would be a difference in the look of each portrait shot at different focal lengths, but we were surprised at how much.   

"In today's video we are going to be doing a photo shoot with every single prime lens that I own so you guys and see the difference in focal lengths when it comes to portrait photography," Trotti says. "We're going to do a bunch of different tests, shoot some full body photos, some close-up photos, some mid-length portraits, so you can see the difference between each of these lenses if you're stuck on what to get next, or maybe you're stuck on which first prime lens you should add to your kit."

If you're interested in portrait photography and/or considering buying a prime lens to add to your photo bag, Trotti covers the waterfront with this lens comparison test. Check it out below and then go visit her YouTube channel for more awesome photography content.
