photoblog image Jad

Jad

Headshot of Jad.  He's young, entirely too short to be a model, and has but one look.  Still, a fun hour o' shooting.  And the lens...oh, the lens.  That 70-200mm is seriously sharp.  Love it!

Will kick out another one or two of him in the future.

Tomorrow?  Not sure.  Have to dig around to see what's in the files...

Hi Michael. He's go that angry look, but the t-shirt ruins it for me, perhaps a white cotton shirt might balance the simmering rage there. Background and sharpness are stunning though. Now that I'm using the f4.0 I'd give an arm or leg for the 2.8, I seem to have become obsessed with fast glass and Canon certainly are a league of their own. Once again though, I am aiming for your standard of portraiture and will post a few shots of my wife soon (prob. over the weekend), please cast your critical eye and help me learn if you get the chance. Cheers, Stuart
Michael Benjamin Studios: Thanks, Stuart. I had him change shirts for other shots (which I'll post later).

And, yeah. That 2.8 ROCKS!!! Though I'm not sure that I'll really use the IS all that much, I got such a great deal on a used version that it just made sense to pay a little bit extra for that.

It's a heavy lens, though. Tough to slog around for a long day of shooting.
Bit of a smoulder there smile

You have certainly caught the look ;o)
I'm quite impressed. not only an awesome portrait, but also really low levels of noise at ISO 1600! why did you push it that high?
Michael Benjamin Studios: Thanks, Maria. I don't think it was actually at 1600 - maybe a glitch in shutterchance? Because, yeah. No noise (and it was really, really sunny - so no reason I'd have pushed it that high.
