Lens: Kenlock 28mm Camera: pentax k-x ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F2.8

Here is a photo of our daughter - we have only just bought a new kenlock 28mm manual lens and have just been trying it out. I used an off-camera flash and focused on her hand.

The second photo is my attempt at focusing on her feet.

the third photo is of myself - my husband took it with the focal point being my eyes.

Good work getting the focus where you want it.
Having a more striking/interesting subject makes the photo that much more appealing.

Thanks Ash,
Really enjoying discovering the different depth of field we can achieve with this little lens. I've ordered a helios 44 and helios 77 manual lens to play with too!
Just when I think I've created a 'good' photo, I browse some of the photos on this forum and am amazed at some of the work - so inspiring!
