All shots are either f1.4 , f2.0 or in between. Uncropped.

F1.4, 1/400th , ISO 320

2) F2.0, 1/125th s.

3) half way between 1.4 and 2.0. Anyhow got with the shutter speed up to 1/400th .s

4) half way between F1.4 and 2.0 - the bokeh still came out pretty good

5) between F1.4 and 2.0. 1/125th

6) between 1.4 and 2.0

7) F2.0

8) between 1.4 and 2.0
