Street fashion with Pantea

It's been a while since my last shoot, but this one made up for that long wait I usually shoot slightly stopped down, but this time the FA77 had to prove itself wide open at f/1.8. Enjoy!

Street fashion
I wished that my streets looked more "fashionable" like yours do.

Past with flying colours I should say Love the colours in the second one, background and the model really accentuate each other, great photo!

I also think the performance is good wide open, just slightly softer at f/1.8 than say f/2.2, but that can work very well for portraits! I've added a third picture from the shoot now as well

For me, the bokeh is a little busy.

Very nice picture. My only questions is how did you get all of that in focus at 1.8.
How did you get every DOF on the same focal plane

Even though it is soft it adds to the picture and a razor sharp would have.

Usually it's with increased distance from subject.

Especially with the first image, a full length body shot with a 77mm means backing up a bit.

Well that's at least how I do it with my “Sweetheart”.

Kerrowdown, your arsenal of primes is truly enviable.

I never think of them that way, as they really are just tools to get a job done.

But yes... I guess I'm lucky as some of these are becoming more difficult to acquire now.

Thanks for explaining it. It makes sense, just never thought of it like that.

As already has been proposed it is a little bit easier when at longer distance, but the focus throw is shorter at longer focal lengths, so it is not THAT much easier. I think it is more to do with the focusing system of the K-3, a lens in good mechanical condition and a fairly easy situation for the AF-system, with meduium amount of contrast and not to much backlight, strange color temperatures etc
