When Shooting Portraits, Primarily Expose for the Skin Tones

One of the things that a lot of people don’t understand about portraits is this: when you’re photographing a person they are the absolute bigger priority in the image. Even in environmental portraiture, their environment is important but the primary object is still the person that you’re photographing. For that reason, a whole lot of portrait photographers will shoot in aperture priority because all that they care about is the depth of field in the scene. But honestly, there’s a whole lot more to it than just that. Instead, you should be exposing your scene based on your subject’s skin tones as a priority. Everything else should be secondary. Luckily, modern cameras are so good that you can do just that.
