general use of a portrait lens

I just perched a 50 mm f1.8 portrait lens for my Canon 60D. I am wondering, generally speaking, what camera settings people use with a portrait lens. Do you use the "portrait" setting and work from within, or do you prefer to just use the M, AV, TV, P, or Automatic modes? I know there are many personal settings, but I am just wondering thereto get started and maybe your experiences will save me a lot of experimenting. Have you found any particular sweet spot, ( settings ) that you constantly use? Thank you for any advice.

Canon EOS 60D
