trying to capture winter in southern California
D80, 35-70mm, shot at f/2.8
gf shot this one of me
i'm really liking the 35-70mm lens, heres a 100% crop off the tree. the bokeh is so sweet
lol, i'll remember to look in the cam next time.
your girl is a better photog than you.
its her1st time using an slr camera also. but my pp skills made it look cool
nice pics dude
I was about to say how her picture of him is better composed than his picture of her.
Nice work, though, man.
is your gf viet?
I wish "winter" looked like that here
nah, chinese like me
gotta move to southern California my friend
what do you guys think about this? its the original crop from the camera:
Took this one on the same day too:
no problems, i think is a good edit, many people like the brown tone also. i think my edit is too saturated, but now i'm too lazy to change
and ya, the eyes is a bit soft, but it's b/c was shooting at f/2.8 and everything came out a bit soft
i put these in the best of 2007 thread. really sharp with my 60mm macro lens. i'm not even sure why i used my 35-70mm for the earlier shoot lol
those were at either
f/2.8 or f/3.3
The focus is on her jacket, and not her eyes. From what I've heard, the primary rule when taking a portrait is that you have to focus on the eyes. Especially when you're working with a shallow depth of field, as is the case here.
ya, i was focusing at the eyes, but it just didn't work well
Haha, cool, just saying. Otherwise I like your compositions.
Also, I said this in another thread where you posted pictures of this girl. Her 'model' face is kinda bland, but when she smiles/looks animated she really pops well. I remember seeing a couple where she looked animated and really liking them.
maybe my PP was bad. i did an unsharpen mask and i think it helped a lot
