Portrait photography is and remains one of the most popular reasons that people pick up a camera and get into photography. But as we all well know, top quality lenses bring with them budget breaking price tags. Luckily, portrait photography can be pretty forgiving, and you don’t need the most expensive lenses in order to get great results.
Today we are going to focus on the best modern lenses (released within the last 4 years) for portraiture that come with a normal price tag under the $1,000 mark – making them relatively attainable for most photographers. Also note, towards the end of last year we did feature a similar listing, of modern portraiture lenses under $500, so in that under $500 category today we will only be noting lenses that have been released since that post, making the majority of this post in the $500-$999 spectrum.
Okay, lets get into it.
