photoblog image Portraits @ Christmas

Portraits @ Christmas

Had a chance to test Mr Skee's Sigma 30mm over the weekend. Here's a shot of the Mrs taken wide open at f/1.4 - a bit soft, but great for portraits. Some fill flash was bounced off the ceiling to add a little soft lighting - still far from studio quality and rather yellow (or is it the Sigma tint?). Although I shot in RAW, rather than spend the Christmas hols faffing around with the temperature setting, I went for a sepia scheme.

A very interesting job in your archive. Beautiful pictures in b&w. Well done !!
Me again... In colours too, of course, they're splendid too. Amazing sense of composition. Very graphic pictures here. Simplicity. I adore !!
