When for a lovely skate with the young fella , and well could resist taking the camera! It’s a horrible affliction I have …….I am rendered useless when trying the make the decision whether or not to take a camera …….if yes ….which one ……then which lens and assortment of goodies …….man the decisions can be sooooo difficult!
So after a short internal debate fighting the fors and against I finally made up my mind ….. K5 DSLR with the nifty 50 1.4. I love this lens super sharp and loves a wide open aperature……bring on the milky bur backgrounds! As you can see this image is a great representation of what this lens is capable of ……..a super shallow depth of field and a blur which is super smooth!
Lighting was nice and warm as the sun was about to go down, the street cars and houses were in the background but as you can see there you can’t even make out what is there. So this is a great way of making the viewer look to what is focused. Compositionally I’ve used this crop before and well I like it ….and I can see me trying to perfect this angle in years to come.
Ok well enough chit chat as you can see focus was dead on the eye , framed nicely to the left, golden rays directly on the face and a nice shine in the eye. And that milky smooooooth back ground!
