Olympus OM-D E-M5 & 75mm f/1.8
chris almost looks like a classic film shot
Cheers mate. Yeah, I came away from that gig feeling just a little bit in love with her. LOL
That's one great shot!
Very nice shot. I like it a lot.
My first reaction as well. This is a beautiful photo!
It would be a perfect classic portrait if the camera had focused on the subject's nearer eye. It is still a great shot but the focus on the dress detail detracts from the subject a little.
I like it, it is very classy. Good job.
Take a look at some macro shots. SiJohnsonPhotography.com
Thanks everyone, I really appreciate your kind words.
Yes, controlling the point of focus was very difficult that night. The stage was in near darkness, apart from a couple of brilliant spots which the performers wandered under from time to time. To help with the conditions, I set my OM-D to AP at f/1.8 to maximise low light performance without dipping into silly ISO territory. The consequence? Shallow DOF of course. Couple this to the fact that she was moving around the stage with gusto (it's a swing band) I have to say that the camera did an incredible job getting what it did. THis particular shat was taken during a dip to the photographer, me, which lasted about a half a second. No time to compose and select a focus point at all. Not bad a resul though.
