very nice! John, what aperture value do you normally use for a shot like this?
Thank you. Quite a large opening, around 3.5 to blur the background ..
Cool, I have a 50mm f/1.4 that produces some cool shots, but sometimes 1.4 seems a little extreme and very hard to focus correctly......I will practice more I guess
If it's the NIKKOR 1.4, 50mm lens, I must say I have given up using it. I can never get a sharp picture with it.
It's a Canon 50mm 1.4. I've gotten some great shots with it the few times I've used it, but at 1.4, it's shallow enough eyes will be in focus and the nose will be a touch blurry. Seems better at f/2.8, but I always have to manually focus it since it's so sensitive
You caught a fine moment here.
lovely portrait !!
