some weeks ago I did an impromptu shoot with Salomé.
Salomé is one of my nieces, and she needed some pictures for thank you cards.
She dropped in on a sunday morning and we had about half an hour for making some pictures.
Fortunately the weather was great, and since we have had so much rain these last 6 months, the green was GREEN!
I took my two main portrait lenses, 85mm and 135mm, but all these shots are with the Canon 135mm f2 L.
For me this is the best lens I have, in terms of image quality. It has plenty of contrast, even in strong backlit images, it is very sharp, from the maximum aperture on, and it has creamy soft bokeh.
Main advice in bright sun conditions: shoot with the sun in the back of your model. It will prevent your subject from peeping the eyes, and you get a beautiful hairlight (a bit strong I admit) for free.
Images have only slightly been enhanced in Lightroom. I have an import standard of +20 contrast +15 clarity, and I did nothing else.
The best of the pack (in my opinion 😉 )
See you soon for the Harley Davidson images (see my facebook page – Ludwig Desmet)
Take care, and come again soon,
