01/52 - An impossible portrait

Was out yesterday to shoot birds with my 200-500mm lens. Best place to shoot swans and gulls is Langenargen. On the quay I ran over a group of 4 students who asked me to shoot them together with Montfort Palace in the background. I asked to shoot one of them.
First thought when she agreed was, what should I do with that big tele lens? There was only 5m (about 6 yards) space. And I tried it...



I was really surprised by the result.

Regards
Klaus

That's a very impressive spontaneous picture tot kick off your thread! :)
Since a couple of months I also have the 200-500 and I'm really loving it.

By the way looking forward to your 52 years challenge. I believe you live somewhere in the South of Germany, a very beautiful place to live I think.

Wow Klaus, you've done it? The 200-500 lens? That was a wish of you, wasn't it?
And I've never seen a portrait shoot with that lens. Congrats!
It seems that you took my meme from '15 for this year?

Hi Frank,
I own it since 4 weeks now but the weather was always to misty to use it.
This was the second time I tried it.

I live in a village near Tettnang, only 12km from the Bodensee (Lake of Constance).
I hope to meet you one day. I can imagine to arrange a European Meeting in my region.

Regards
Klaus

Ha Aaron,
yes I've done it - to my own surprise.
I never thought this picture works. Lens set to 200mm f5,6 distance only approx. 4 to 5 meters. Much to close in my opion... Always the wrong lens for the reason.
But that student had such a beautiful smile - so I tried.

Thank you
Klaus

That is a great shot to start. I shoot with my 70-200 for portraits outside all the time. It does a great job and now I see this lens does as well.

Very nicely done Klaus. A difficult task with such a lens but I can understand not passing the opportunity to shoot such a pretty young lady. She has a wonderful smile and you captured it beautifully. I like the framing you used.

Hi Art,
the framing was mere coincidental- I had no room to move to get a little more distance...
But I like the picture too.
