Spring is in the air...
Very good weather for this past couple of days here in Kansas City. We took advantage of this and shot Vicky with her new outfit using my new lens, the 50mm f/1.8G
I love it! The focus is fast, build quality top notch and super duper sharp. Also I just love the smooth focus ring which comes so handy when doing video with the D600.
The lighting conditions were pretty harsh as you can see and I'm pleased by the dynamic range and depth that the D600 captured.
I've tried some fill in flash but I couldn't make it work, even with EV -2. Firstly I would get small apertures f/11 - f/16 and all my shallow depth of field was gone. Secondly, with larger aperture the photo would be completely over exposed.
In this case a reflector would be the best tool for the job since it would direct light where I want without overexposing or forcing me to bend my creative vision to all in focus type look f/16.
