    Did some Christmas family portraits for my friend's family over the weekend (will be posting some of the actual portraits for feedback later). After finishing the portraits (went somewhat less than smoothly due to a cranky 1.5 year-old who didn't feel like coooperating), I put the 85 1.4 on to capture a few candids. As always, comments/critiques/feedback welcome.

    Note - PBase has been having some trouble with direct-linking lately, if you get a red 'X' try refreshing the page or if that doesn't work clicking on the red 'x' which should take you to the actual PBase gallery page for the image where it will hopefully show up.

  2. Jeff, these are really nice especially the last one. That's truly a killer shot!

  3. Hi Jeff! I saw the first one and thought that was a really fine shot! Great capture of a playful moment between father and child. Then I saw the last shot! That's priceless! Beautifully done!!
  4. Very nice images with good interaction between subjects. Well done.

    I appreciate the feedback Phil, Dave, and Justin. The 84 1.4 really is a special lens, I'm going to make more of an effort to use it in the future.
