A local photo club has organised an outing for the members. One thing about Toronto is that there is no lack of models of diff nationalities.

Looks like a fun outing Daniel and you got some very nice glamor photos. I am not sure that Mrs. NonEntity would approve of me joining such an expedition though.

BTW the lens I was using majority of the time was my DA200mm. I was usually far away from the models as per wife's advice. Mrs. NonEntity being more far sighted should have got you a DA300mm for portrait then

The lens lends to capturing great portraits and without any real environment set-up to do studio type portraits these did come out well.

The first two are the best due to the lighting being even and nothing distracting in the background. Lines running behind their head, visible CA from the background or around the edges of their hair, mixed lighting on their face are distractions.

The last one is very good also and has a nice softness to it.



Mahalo,

Tom

Being a strobist, you know in what direction I am pushing. If you look at the 2nd image , you can see that the 200mm lens has a DoF still very little at F5. The umbrella was held very close indeed already and I could still render the image almost distraction free.

What I had was nothing except a cheapo Sigma 500ST direct flash and that was about it





The others I did not do that well. But the quality of the models helps :-):-)


This one is at F3.2
