15 minute balcony session

I digged this session in my archive. Shots were taken in early October 2006, when my friend Matias was testing studio lighting in Kazina. After a few shots that I made inside with the 2 sofboxes he had, I got bored (I hate studio photography since you are stuck in one place) and shooting at f9 made me sick so I had to ran out on the balcony and make a f1.8 series with Andreja. I'm going to show you a lot of the photos I took, so you can get a picture of what we were shooting.

I started with my tiny Canon 50 1.8 at f2.5 (because it's not sharp below f2.5), the first 3 are made with it:




85 mm, f1.8:

Below you can see two 85 mm, f1.8 shots, with beautiful bokeh. Focused on the near eye:

Again 85 mm, f1,8 focused on the far eye:

Yeah that's me (reflection in the eye). Huge crop f3.5, 1/80 handheld and still sharp:

Please help me decide on the crop. The first one is the original capture, second is cropped:


This come out best of all in my opinion - yeah you've already seen it in another post. 85mm f1.8

EDIT(added at 16.00): I forgot about this "ninja style" photo. I took a few photos like this one, to focus on her beautiful eyes:

Mislim da je crop fotka tam boljsa, ampak se je tezko odlociti. Drugace so pa vse hude, samo tista barvna mi nekak ni najbolj. Lp

men pa tud barvna sede.. nasplošno so mini dof fotke zakon (vsaj men). Dost filinga da sliki.
Ka un 50mm 1.8 je kej fejst slabši od 85? Ko bi rad 50 nabavu pa ne vem al se splača..

Tnx vsem za komentarje.

rokor: s 50ko nimaš kaj zgrešiti za to ceno, je definitvno best value objektiv (ne samo med Canoni).
S 85ko se sicer ne more primerjati, je pa še vedno soliden - sicer v ostrini od f2.8 naprej ni veliko razlike, večje razlike se vidijo v AF, barvah, bokehu in zgradbi. Samo kot se napisal, ni primerjave, objektiva sta iz čisto različnih razredov, tudi cenovno je razlika 4x-na.
Če si imel do zdaj samo zoome, boš vsekakor zelo zadovoljen s kvaliteto slike, sploh z ostrino. Če imaš bolj poceni zoome, boš pravzaprav presenečen.

hvala ti!
potem bom verjetno presenečen nad slikam, saj uporabljam same cheap zoom objektive:)
