I say it does a fairly decent job..


All that was done here was a little nifty feature in CS2 called "Smart Sharp"..at 70% [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] & a very very slight curve adjustment to add a very little contrast to liven it up a tad..and here it is....

Or should I say, Troy...here is Troy.. a Milwaukee based model..available world wide.. He will be in London doing a few runway shows in a week from now..and then off to here, there and over there too...yep..

BTW,..to see the much larger size of this pic,...(GG resizes it to make it a lot smaller) see:

I actually liked the results of the limited depth of field... it sure beats that 1.6 format with a big stick!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I like it a lot. As part of my "conversion" to Canon, I just picked up the 24-105mm f4L lens, but I was thinking I might want to get one fixed focal length that would have very shallow DOF and less weight than the zooms, for exactly this type of headshot. I was thinking more of the 100mm f2, or even the 135mm f2 though, any reason why you picked the 85mm? (And any of the three will be my third rebate item, qualifying me for the triple rebate on all items!).

Thank you Andy! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I was using the 100mm f2.8 Macro before this shot,..but switched to the 85mm f1.8 because the wide open dof was shallower, and I could manual focus easier on Troy's eyes with the brighter f-stop of the 85mm.. The 85mm has a closer minimum focusing distance than does the 135mm f2.0 L,...and quite frankly, I didn't get a chance to try out that lens on Troy.. However, tomorrow..(Sunday) I am shooting with Mandy, and I look forward to trying out that lens on her to see if it's any better, different..etc.. I would have used the 100mm f2.0 if I owned it.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] That is one lens I actually could have used twice today with various poses,...unfortunately, if I buy that lens this week, I'll have to redo this photo which I took tonight..with the help of my friend Dan's camera & lens:

As I was shooting this close to troy with those shades,...I noticed a little problem staring right back at me.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] Hence the reason for having him raise his shades..



Yep!

Ouch. I see now that it was "evil" JP shooting with your lens. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Crop down the middle of his nose, take the lens on the right and it becomes your avatar.
