How to Shoot Pretty Portraits with a Compact Camera; Manny Ortiz Strips It Down With the Sony RX100 V

Most photographers think of “golden hour” as prime time for capturing stunning sunrises and sunsets, and know it’s important to get there early to set up their shot. But as you’ll see in the video below, the sweet early morning and late day light also provides a great opportunity for portraits.

Manny Ortiz is an accomplished photographer, and when you combine his skills with a pretty model, the glow of golden hour, and a suprisingly powerful compact camera like the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V, you know the images are going to be special.

Ortiz demonstrates the capabilities of Sony’s little powerhouse RX100 V and its sharp 24-70mm built-in Zeiss lens, and provides a rundown of the camera’s specs at the end of the video. So take a look and then read our comprehensive lab review of the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V that we just posted yesterday.

You can watch more videos from Ortiz on his YouTube channel. And be sure to check out our earlier tutorial on shooting golden hour landscapes and editing them in Lightroom.
