Portrait Shooting with Nikon D7500
Step 1. Articulating Touch Screen Monitor
The articulated touch screen is a liquid crystal display that can be turned or adjusted to suit your needs. The Nikon D7500 is a tilted touch-screen LCD Monitor that measures 3.2 inches in high resolution (922K dots) and can be customized with Monitor Color Balance from the Setup Menu.
This feature is available on the Nikon D7500. You can enter text using an on-screen keyboard, select a Spot White Balance area, and autofocus area while clicking Live View. Then just touch the shutter (Touch Shutter), to release it from Live View. It is easy to scroll, zoom and view playback images using the touch screen. The “Frame Advance Bar”, which allows you to quickly review images by scrolling through them instead of having to swipe one at a time, is also available.
Step 2. Group Area AF
The camera will focus on the object you want to shoot while selecting a group of focus points. This allows one to focus more easily on the object than the background. Most subjects are too difficult to photograph with one focus point.
You can continue to enjoy the portrait shot with Nikon 7500. However, you should use all five AF points that are set up in a cross-shaped arrangement to focus on a subject. This is especially important in situations when a single AF point may not be sufficient.
Step 3. Electronic Front Curtain Shutter
This feature can be found in the Custom Setting D4 and is used to reduce camera vibrations. It also controls blurring in portraits and macro shots. It can be used with Mirror Up (Mup), Release Mode, either during Live View Shooting and Viewfinder. Images shot with Nikon D7500 are enhanced by the 20.9-megapixel sensor.
Step 4. Picture Controls
The Auto Picture Control feature of the D7500 will let the camera choose the best settings to capture your images. Flat Picture Control is the preferred choice for videographers because it allows you to have the most flexibility in post-processing, while still retaining all details in the highlights and shadows. The Picture Control option also includes a Clarity Parameter as well as a Brightness adjustment. This allows for a greater range and a finer (0.25-step) adjustment increment.
Step 5. White Balance Improvements
To add warmth to outdoor portraits, you can use the White Balance options in D7500 with ‘Keep warm’ or ‘Normal lighting colors. This feature allows you up to six Preset White Balance settings (PRE) and the Live View Spot White Balance measurement.
The Nikon D7500 is a top-rated portrait camera. Even if you’re not a professional photographer, you can still use the settings to create the perfect portrait.
