Just curious - what camera and lens did you use, Daniel?

Pentax K20D & DA200mmF2.8

Pressing shutter with this lens on the camera is like pumping out creamy/dreamy bokeh even at F5.6 as it has relatively shallow DoF. Well that is quite subjective anyway depending on your preference of color rendition.

Awesome results!

Pentax should pay you as a "stealth" marketer for their products.

Your work should encourage others to consider your setup.

I would say I am more like a 'stealth' shooter as I am essentially a birdie shooter. Using unusual long lens does not intimidate me. Also I hate the staged genre of portrait and getting the spontanity of the subject has always been my key objective.

The 200mm is a cream bokeh machine if there is such a term. And that should apply to other brands (Sony, Canon Nikon Oly) as well. My initial concept came from a fellow using a huge Nikon 200mmF2 producing some very dreamy image. My thought was that if Pentax DA200mm was sharp enough, it would definitely give a great bokeh. For tech aspect, if you sort out the sharpness and bokeh, that solve a lot of problem. Here is a shot from a Nikon 200mmF2





A fixed prime lens gives people the impression that it is very limiting. In fact it is easier for me once I had a firm grasp of the FoV of it.

That's a good point.

I should look up a 200m prime for my Canon 20D!
