Shelby /43Ltd
Lens: 43 Ltd Camera: K20D Photo Location: Texas ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/45s Aperture: F9.5 
Posted By: Rupert, 01-16-2011, 06:46 PM

I haven't used my 43Ltd very much since I got it a couple of months ago, but it seems to be a nice performer when I do.
Here I caught Shelby a little by surprise, but the shot came out fairly decent anyhow.......I need to use this lens more often, but once I mount the DA*50-135, it is hard to get it off.
Regards

Shelby...

She looks to be giving the kiss pose rather than look surprised.
Nicely rendered and you're starting to come out with some nicely lit portraits Rupert.
Well done.

Thank you Ash.....this was not one of the better ones, just a quick snap while she was preparing......I think I am understanding the light better....not fully, but better. I was wondering if this would eventually bore me, but it seems to be more fun with every shoot. I have got to lay off that Pizza and those Hot Wings though......they are wrecking my diet! Sure wish you could come down and act as an adviser, it would speed the learning curve considerably.
Best Regards!

Great shot, a bit sexy I would say. The 43mm is my most used lens, always great color and clarity. thanks Bob

I figured you would be along Bob......yes, it is a bit lip puckered! LOL!

I think the 43 Ltd will get more use in my future, it is a good performer and a nice size too. The range is not always just right for me, but it is certainly outstanding for the range it covers. That DA*50-135 is just hard to beat for ranging in and out while shooting portraits, and although it is not a prime, it is hard to tell the difference.
Best Regards! & Thanks for dropping by!

Try a few with her mouth a bit open. That is if she has teeth.

That would be fun. Never been to TX before.

Hey Rupert - that look of surprise is perfect - you're getting this portrait thing down cold.

Ash - if you come to Texas, stop by the coast for a sail. And bring Rupert; I want to race that Jeep of his.

I remember a photo when she was smiling and she had pretty teeth, but it seems to me she had blond hair. I might be wrong though, that is happening a lot lately. Bob

Ash/Sailor......You guys are always welcome here. It would be a pleasure to have you at one of the sessions. My Jeep is not much at racing, but you could give it a try.......it's not fast, but it's Fun!

Bob....You're thinking of Lacie......she has teeth too, and is Blond.....

Now I just gotta find the time to visit (issues of family and all...)

Good work on these last two Rupert.
Sharp and nicely contrasted with good lighting again, particularly #2.
#1 could do with a slight temperature modification (cool her down a bit - she's too 'hot' )

For lots of good reasons... many of the wisest portrait photographers live by the mantra ... "never broad light a broad". Consider switching the main and fill on these for a more pleasing result (short light). In other words have her look directly at the main.
