I will be trying my hand at portrait photography for the first time next week as I'm helping out in a school magazine interview. It won't be a studio setting or anything formal.
As of now, I'm working with only a D40 with the 18-55mm kit lens...I understand that the best lenses for portraiture are fast primes and/or those with longer focal lengths.
Hence I'm looking for any suggestions and tips for taking portraits using only the kit lens...any input is greatly appreciated...thanks!
(and yes, I've googled "portrait photography, kit lens" before posting this thread)
