What settings should I use for outdoor portraits?
The key to a great outdoor portrait is considering how bright it is outside.

Playing around with the ISO settings can produce fantastic results — just don’t go overboard.

Setting to a wide aperture like f/1.2 or f/2.8 – you will let more light into the sensor and create a narrow depth of field. A narrow DOF means that a small portion of the image will be in focus (such as the portrait subject), while the background will be blurred out.
