This was a challenging shot to get and luckily enough the light was on my side the morning I took this, it was perfectly glinting off his eye and I managed to shoot this in the second that something further in the bushes caught his eye and he stopped perfectly framed by these branches granting me this light and dark contrasty image..


Shot with a Canon 7D mkii, Sigma 150 - 600mm C lense at 600mm, f6.3, ISO 1600, 1\1000

      I haven't been able to find anything regarding the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED in this forum. It very quickly has become my favorite lens. It is incredibly sharp even wide open!

      I made several pictures shooting with the 105mm f/1.4 wide open.

      True story, I am not a people or portrait photographer.  I have never really savored the thought of taking photos of people.  So, reluctantly I have started wading into this area from my normal arena of nature and aviation subjects.  Well, not too far, as this was taken at the BIG airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin this past summer.  I stepped outside of my comfort zone and gently worked my way into a pinup model shoot that was taking place in a public area with one of the P-51s and introduced myself (a big move for me) to Heather.  I along with a friend spent the day with this lovely young lady taking her photo with different aircraft and people on the grounds of the airshow.  Do I need to mention that having a lady such as this makes it almost impossible to not get access to some really cool airplanes and reenactors?  Oh, I did have my Olympus 75mm f1.8 with me, thankfully, and here are the results.  More to follow.

      of her time ...
      My wife wanted me to attempt a portrait similar to a painting we saw while on vacation last december , finally we had some time at the beginning of feb and I finally got to process it
      She is not very patient with me taking pictures of her, so I need to be quick.


      85mm f2.2 
      1 softbox to my right
      The shallow DOF helped me a lot with the skin processing , there is room for improvement in my lightning , in my direction of her, in the background, in the makeup, probably in my processing but at this time I do not know any further techniques. 
      anyhow, it tops any other shot I have taken of her
