All portrait lenses offer a different style and different end result. A wide aperture means that a Canon portrait lens will deliver a shallow depth of field, helping to create that classic blurred background headshot.

Alternatively, portrait lenses with a flexible focal length can allow you to experiment, which is great for group or candid shots, or for taking fun photos of friends and family.

Here at Canon, we’ve made sure to include a wide range of portrait lenses. If you need help choosing your lens, check out our Camera Lenses for Beginners guide.
