Some snaps from a family portrait session. First one with the PENS.
The Path Less Pedaled
Lovely, third shot is killer!
I love this lens.These are few shots with my EPL2+ 20mm
Some great work there Russ. Loved your Portland Fall photos, as well!
Stunning shots Russ. I love the second one the most
Actually not my family, it was a paid portrait shoot. First assignment without the DSLR. A little strange getting use to. Miss a VF, but it still worked out. I picked up the VF2 recently and I think it will help the usability immensely.
Beautiful, there's something extraordinary when a big eyed baby stares straight at you, almost like a window into their soul.
X2, very nice!
E-PL2 with 20mm f1.7
Panasonic 20mm works quite well for portraits although you do have to get a bit close. First two are at f1.7, third one at f2.
Here are a couple portraits I took with the 20mm lens on my PL-1
The last one my daughter took of my neighbor. Dumb luck? likely, but she did do it on purpose.
Yeah, I like the 20 overall, but it has some issues. For me I feel that:
-focuses a bit slow (using an EP3)
-have to be in close to take advantage of shallow DOF
-a little prone to flare when shooting backlit (and no stock hood)
Picked up the 45mm 1.8 recently and will be playing with that as a portrait lens.
