On the Walter Bean Trail with Mitzy

Mitzy and I went for a walk in the snow on the Walter Bean Trail last week. Despite being only 10 cm, it was still the biggest snowfall since March, 2011. Here are a couple of shots, both with cinematic crops that I feel work quite well.

First, one with the AF-S 85mm f1.8 G.  Mitzy was standing in a sunbeam poking through the trees. I’m finding this lens to have extremely accurate focus and wonderful subject separation. This is at f/4 and Mitzy still pops from the background. The bokeh is still great at f/4 as well. Unfortunately I overexposed her face, leading to some poor skin tones when I recovered the highlights.

DSC_9600Next is a manually focussed shot with the 35mm f/1.8 DX at f/1.8.


Thanks for looking!
