Well I got my new lens today, Canon 50mm F/1.8!!!!!!!! Here is a portrait shot.
Ok... I hope I'm not offending anyone here but this girl has got one of the most evil looks on her face in that photo! She looks like she's getting ready to stab you in the back once you turn around!
I cannot wait to get one of those lenses! It should happen soon for me and I'll be so excited, Her eyes are beautiful. Have you tried it in low light? Does it work as welll as I hear? Let me know!
Kyuss- lol! I think you're right on that one... Yikes!!
Cool pic though!
This shot is nice, but its a bit underexposed. You may want to check Levels in this one and adjust accordingly. The blue eyes are awesome as usual, but I would work on the shadows around the eyes a bit and under her chin. They seem to be a little too dark, and therefore give her too much of a foreboding look. Keep shooting and posting.
Congrats on your new lens! I love the 50mm f/1.8. As I have said before, I believe it to be the best value lens on the market for canon lenses. You just cant beat the price for that kind of quality.
Kathi, I was playing around tonight with the lens in low light. It works pretty good. I did have to up my ISO to 800 but I never had to turn on the flash. I haven't been able to use my camera indoors yet without the on camera flash because all I would get was blur until I got this lens.
Also, I am noticing with this lens that the Auto Focus seems to have a little hard time finding the focus. Its taking some practice using this but other then that its so worth the $75!!!!!
Thanks NJ for your helpfulness! I always appreciate your comments!
I dont mind the look on her face/in her eyes...I think that it may be the intense blue color. To me it is a little dark and seems a little cold. The pic is great though!!! I like the natural looks people give. I have two kids myself and my son can stare a hole through you w/his looks....lol
Agreed!!! A little scary!
I dont think she looks scary at all. The look is "piercing" maybe, but thats about the extent of it. Just a little work on the shadows under the eyes using the dodge tool at 15-20% and pass over it a few times would do it.
Well here is the photo with a quick overall enhancement. Nothing at all was done with the eyes. That is quite a natural intense blue colour. On a professional portrait even more postprocessing would be done but there is great potential with this model.
Congrats on the new lens, you need to post more from this lens.
