    Lovely pics. Did you use a certain mode as the shutter speeds seem fast?

    Probably Aperture priority to keep the aperture at F1.4 :)

    Nice shots but the processing on that first shot almost makes it look like theperson has been added later to me :rolleyes:

    Just Aperture priority on the D700, no fancy auto modes. It was very bright, hence the fast speeds.

    No processing on the first shot really, just desaturated to about 3 in ACR and upped the blacks and contrast a little thats all. I wouldnt have used f/1.4 for that shot usually, but it was a snapshot. I was on the floor about to change lenses and just saw it and snapped. No time to set anything up.

    I like the set, especially #1 & #3.

    However, I do think in #1 and #2 it seems the focus has missed slightly where you you really want it, quite possibly due to movement from when focus lock was acquired and the shutter firing.

    Cheers,

    John

    1.)Yes it is softer than I would have liked. It was very much a snapshot. I was on the floor about to change lenses and just saw it and snapped. Not sure why the focus is lowdown,I thought I had focused on the head, Obviosuly not! I took some more similar afterwards, but the poses just didnt look as natural as this one.

    2.) This was more "setup" in the fact we were both stood still, again I focussed on the eye, so no idea why the scarf is sharper, I can only think Its because I was so cold and shivering. At f/1.4 you dont have much room for error. I semi agree with the walking stick. If it was a set up shoot, I would have had a shotgun, gundog etc etc, but it was just a normal walk and I happened to have my camera so I didnt have any props to play with.


    3.) For some unknown reason I focused on the far eye rather than the closest, but it hasnt seemed to ruin the shot as it could have.
