Default Portraits of the Dogs.. at F2

Over the weekend.. suddenly realised that I've hardly shot wide open with the beastie since I got it, so I've decided thats going to have to change and the dogs happily volunteered!

1/250 @F2 ISo 400 - Shot RAW PP'd LR 4.2. The WB was all over the place and I wasnt able to really fix it. The DOF looks pretty good .. the last time I did a portrait at F2 it was razor thin with one eye in focus and the other totally out which wasnt too flattering.

Couldnt get them to pose for any more than a shot or two and then they were off.....

Fun shots Harj. Razor sharp around the eyes.

Me either, but yes these do work well, especially the first one. Lots of personality and strength there.

These are looking excellent HarjTT, the second one is my favorite.
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.
