Default Kevin

Hey guys, it's been a long time since I've posted a shot here at Steve's... but here's a portrait of my little cousin Kevin I shot this summer.



C&C is of course very welcome... an btw, you can check out my brand new website if you want too - it's german, but you can take a look at the pictures

a little be more spacing would capture the whole head better. Looks like you used a big aperture, nice shallow dof form the face to the ear.

Thank you shoturtle - that's the kind of style I like these days: Portraits with big aperture, landscape format and kinda close cropped... glad you like the dof

Big aperture ef 50 1.4 or ef 50 1.2L really give you even more shallow dof. Might be to much at times.

1.2 would be really crazy (just like the prize of that glass )... but most of the time I use 2 or 2.2, something like that.

The 50 1.2L is very sharp at 1.2, and stop down a little it is even sharper. Pretty intense lens. But yeah, very very pricey. The sigma 50 1.4 would be the second best 50mm out there, it is big and heavy but very good and sharp.

Markus,
while the portrait is ok, I am not liking the doorway to the right of the subject. I know that is trivial, but it actually distracts. I wish I could like it more.

Thanks for commenting... you're right with the doorway, the background is not that great
