Took this with the 85 at 2.0 on the Vegas trip to get a controled DOF.

Yes that is Annie doing what they do that takes so long before you can go anywhere!

I was just looking for ways to use the shallow DOF to work for me and I liked the way this one turned out. So many times it is more of a pain than a help when your using the lens close to wide open.

That was an excellent idea and I like the framing that resulted. That is the closest I have seen of a self portrait of you Tom.

Wonderful photo - small DOF can be either so much fun or so frustrating. This is a time where it is so much fun! Not sure your wife looks very happy about having her picture taken while she's doing her hair, though (I'm sympathetic to your subject this time).

She was not too happy about me dragging my DSLR around wherever we went anyway, but the mirror shot was way down the list of her favorites at the time.

Now she actually likes the shot, although she mentioned some PP work she wanted done.

Great shot Tom, tell Annie it looks great. I have tried some portraits with the old M 50mm f1.7 but I am hoping the FA 50mm f1.4 will make it easier. It should be arriving any day now. As for an 85, not likely to ever make it to my budget.
