I went hiking today with my girlfriend. I took one lens, my 50mm f/1.8. I wanted to challenge myself. I got home and did a quick look though and edit and came up with these two portraits of Melanie. This first one, the background is a bit blown out, but I am happy with the way her face came out. On this one, there are three hot spots on her face, but I was able to turn it down a little. I do realize that the DOF is a bit shallow. I was playing around a bit before these and forgot to set it back. As we were leaving, I saw a pair of military helicopters flying buy, so I snapped off a few shots. Here is a tight crop of one of said shots. As always, C&C is appreciated.
