How do you adjust Canon EOS R portrait settings to portrait photography?
The Canon EOS R first appeared in 2018. It features a familiar 30.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor, without optical low pass filters.
This device comes with the DIGIC 8 image processing processor, which offers a 100-40,0000 native ISO range and continuous shooting at 8 fps.
Canon EOS R flip cameras feature Dual Pixel AF, just like current Canon DSLRs. However, it surpasses the older models with 5,655 selectable AF points and boasts 100% horizontal coverage and close to 90% vertical coverage.
Canon has given the camera a weather-sealed magnesium alloy shell.
Users will also receive a 0.5-inch OLED electronic viewer with 3.69 million dots, a remarkable 0.76x magnification, and a fantastic 23mm eyepoint. EOS R can record 4K (UHD) at 30 frames per second.

How to take outstanding portrait photos using Canon EOS R
Portrait shots should be taken at f/2.8 to f/5.6 to achieve a shallow depth-of-field. This blurs the background and makes your subject stand out.
You can also use special portrait lenses to blur the background further.
Photographs of people blink and change their facial expressions constantly. There is nothing worse than photos where they smile instead of smiling or are half-blinding.
You will need to have a fast shutter speed to avoid these problems and not allow motion blur to appear on your photos.
This will prevent camera shakes and help ensure sharp shots. In Aperture priority mode, use a wide aperture to get sharp shots. To increase the shutter speed, increase ISO (around 100 ISO-400 ISO).
Although your captured photo might look a bit grainy, it is still better than a useless one.
The background is as important as your subject to take a good portrait shot. Distracting background can distract from the subject and take away its importance. Photographs of portraits should be taken with a neutral background that isn’t too busy so that the viewers aren’t distracted.
It doesn’t mean that you have to use a boring background. A musician might be positioned in front of her guitar or a fisherman may be positioned in front of his boat. To add some texture or color, you can put up a wall or fence. You can choose what you want.
Portraits look better when the subject’s eyes are focused. This creates an engaging photograph and increases eye contact between the subject of the photo and the audience.
When taking portraits, especially those with shallow depth-of-field, be sure to carefully set your focus points. You can do this by going to the viewfinder and selecting the central AF spot using AF. Then, position the central focus point over the subject’s eyes and press the shutter button halfway to lock the focus.
Move your camera around to recompose the shot. Finally, press the shutter button to capture an error-free shot.
