Portrait Day

No time for a photo walk today.  Busy working all day today and tomorrow.  Today’s assignment was to shoot a dozen heads for corporate web site and in house publication.  Used one umbrella and reflector.  Nothing else.  Subject really close to background gives nice spill light for medium tone.  85mm 1.4 G lens at f8 still gave soft focus on background and even nice soft fall off on rear shoulders.

  1. Good start for the Bob Laramie Portrait Primer. I’ve got my eye on that super cheap 50mm 1.8 (will shoot like a 80mm.)

  2. Dan: That is a great choice in lenses for a DX format camera. Shallow depth of field and easily used in very low light. Go for it.
