This was taken at 7:18am. The morning light was so beautiful. The model is Kasia Sweeny.
Fred, great shot...I love how you use your reflector to get some light on her face...very even lighting...nice, very nice...
Excellent Fred, your lens is doing what it does best.
Great choice of model for that lens. Nice capture.
Great shot Fred...it looks like it was a little chilly - the hair on her arm is standing straight up!! :biggrin:
Beautiful shot Fred. Nice example of the 85 1.4!
And to think...some start their morning with a boring cup of coffee... :Wink:
Nice job with the lighting here. Love the backlighting on her hair.
Glad to see you are getting good with that lens wide open. It still gives me fits at f1.4!
Thanks John. This was a tricky shot for me, but I felt brave and tried it with the 85mm - I think could be a little sharper.
Thanks Gordon. IMO this is my first keeper @ f1.4 with my 85mm.
How can you tell a reflector was used?? You're good!!
you're brutal man (7:18am?) ,,i love it,lol ...wonderful shot, Frede....don't worry about "sharp" it's plenty sharp...it's all about the MAGIC, and u captured it perfectly, imho....;-)))
Excellent capture, very nicely done
Love it Fred.............. very fresh.......... and has a superb 70's feel to it! :biggrin:
Great job Fred.
I love the backlit rimlighting of the hair.
No twisted straps... I'm happy :biggrin:
Very nice, Fred.
It's a lovely shot, but I am most amazed at how much is actually in focus at 1.4 with that lens.
very nice again...
Thanks Mitchell. More lucky than good really.
Yea John is right. The effect of the reflector was very subtle - I was reflecting ambient light not the sun on this.
Thanks Nute - we were late for this time of the year - should have been there 90 minutes earlier.
Thanks Graeme - fresh was our goal, so that's nice to hear.
Thanks Woody.......now strap issue......yeah! :smile:
Thanks Stuart - I am amazed the I got a keeper at 1.4 - first one I think......
Beautiful pose, composition, sharpness, and use of fill lighting. I made an adjustment using a Levels layer to lower the darks a little, increasing contrast. I set the blackpoint at 10 and gamma to 0.85.
