4/365 Prime 77mm Piano Keys

It has been a long day, but I committed to daily shooting so late evening I finally got to it.

Camera: Pentax K1

Lens: Pentax SMCP-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited Silver

ISO 1600, 77mm, f/1.8, 1/125

Subject: Our piano. Ambient room light from overhead LED Flushmout lights.  Night-time.

I shot this handheld. The shot probably would have benefitted from a tripod. At f/1.8 and at minimum focusing distance (about 2.5 ft) the depth of field is razer thin. The bokeh seems really smooth. I think I am going to love this lens a lot.  I bought the lens for portrait work but I see many artistic possibilities.

The image below is the first I took with the lens just a few days ago.
