How to photograph people

To catch fleeting facial expressions, the most revealing “action” of all, set your shutter speed at 1/125 of a second when you are using lenses up to 100 mm.

A telephoto or zoom lens allows you to observe people’s expressions from a distance. But with longer focal-length lenses, use faster film (ISO 400) so you can use faster shutter speeds-for example, with a 200 mm. lens use at least 1/250.
