To achieve a classic portrait shot where the subject stands out against a blurred background, you need a lens with a lower aperture creating a small depth of field. Portrait lenses can be in a variety of focal lengths, however prime lenses provide superior clarity and more detail than zoom lenses when it comes to portrait photography.
Find a lens that suits your style. Canon offers a range of EF & EF-S (DLSR), EF-M (for M-series) and RF (for R-series) lenses for portrait photography.
