I have been asked to take some casual family portraits for family. I'd like to take them outdoors to give a nice natural fell to everything.
I've never thought about taking portrait photos before so I don't have much necessary equipment. So I was thinking of getting the:
AF-S 50mm 1.8
Are these two things are both good for portraiture and anything else that I might photograph in the future?
Also, any outdoor family portrait tips for a beginner?
