60/365 Primes 31 Limited and Toby

Intro

I was hired to photograph a young lady and her dog Toby and a nearby park. She was only in town for the day and I had limited openings. So, we shot at 9 am with a fairly clear and high sun.  Every other day this week has been overcast as well as the day following.

Set up:

Camera: Pentax K1

Lens: SMC Pentax FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited

Light: Partial shade and a Photogenics strobe with soft box on 1st photo. Full sun 2nd photo.

ISO 100   31mm   f/5.6   1/200th Hand held with strobe in a soft box.

Toby's eyes are so crisp! and the gras and mountains in the background have a nice out of focus blur but stay recognizable giving Megan and Toby all the attention. (note photo is un-retouched and it was windy)

ISO 100   31mm   f/2.2   1/4000 Direct sun, hand held.

Summary:

I'm thrilled with the way the 31 Limited performed. at f/2.2 the bokeh got nice and smooth and really blurred out the background. Toby's eyes are crisp but his nose is out of focus.


IS I have no idea how "is" got there, nor why I cannot delete it.
