Portrait of Cafe member Dao Dang

Discussion in 'People' started by Frits, Jan 4, 2006.

  1. Here is a shot of fellow Cafe member Dao Dang, when we stopped for lunch in a small countryside diner.

    Taken with my MF Ai 50mm f/1.4
    Natural light @ f/2.0 (razorthin DOF from close up distance):


    More images of our outing in a few threads in the "Landscapes" forum...
  2. Look how happy he looks!! Must be the new 'X'!! Gale and I were fortunate to enjoy a day shooting with him earlier this year. You are right---he is a gentleman!
  3. would love to meet him personally, indeed he has been a real gentleman in all of my exchanges with him through this site. Great image!

    Dao has a great smile and it's great to hear that the two of you had a chance to have lunch together.
  5. The pleasure was also mine, meeting with such fine fellow Cafe member Frits. Thanks for a great day, Frits!

    Still struggle with the 'X' focus. The focus seemed to fall somewhere on the left shoulder even if I focus on the left eye and ear:confused:
  6. Hold on ... I know this guy ... :)

    I even talk to him from time to time ...

    I think both Frits and Dao are fantastic guys ...
  7. Dao is a fine gentleman and I have enjoyed our interchange here at the Cafe. Thanks for giving us a look at his smiling face Frits. I will say I like his image of you better than yours of him. Again his talent shows through.
  8. Quite agree Gordon:biggrin:
    Mine was during lunch with my Ai 50mm, in his face! Absolutely not the lens for the situation, if you want a good portrait. But as an improvision it still makes me smile and somehow illustrates the good natured guy Dao is
    . BTW, I got a better portrait of him on this thread: https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=59504
