57/365 Primes 77 Limited and Rachelle Krause

I photographed Rachelle Krause for her modeling portfolio.  These are a few shots done with the 77 Limited.

Camera: Pentax K1

Lens: smc Pentax-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited

ISO 200  77mm  f/8.0  1/125th Hand held.

The 77 Limited gets wonderful detail at f/8 and I like it for both full body shots as well as head shots.

29/365 Primes Studio Portrait with 31mm and 77mm Limiteds

Todays 365 Primes Project is from a studio session using the 33mm Limited and the 77 mm Limited. I also shot with the 50mm FA f/1.4 but am not including any images from that lens today.

Lens 2: SMC Pentax FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited (Review here)

Head shot of Stevie. She is trying to get started modeling.

Here is a cut in which shows how detaild this lens can be.Same as above.

I shot the image below hoping to play with compositing later this week.ISO 100 77mm f/8 1/125th Camera stand.

I found the detail in her face to still be sharp and crisp even this far out.

Below is a hand held sample at f/1.8. I goofed and focused on the far eye. You can see how the areas just in front and just behind her eye quickly fall out of focus,

Lastly, Stevie really wanted a photo in her Derek Carr Raiders jersey. I wanted to play with the 31 Limited so it came out for this set. It kind of freaks me out having to be in such close proximity to my subjects with this lens.ISO 200 31mm f/5 1/100th Camera stand.

I havent figured out this lens for shooting individuals yet. The distortion of a wide lens on a full frame sensor is new to me. I'll keep playing.
