| p.1 #1 · Work portraits of my father |
Over the weekend I took some photos of my father at work. I shot these with available light inside a burn building, so the only light was from whichever window was closest, and the interior is a thick matte black to say the least (so there is no reflection/stray light bouncing around inside). Unfortunately, the fastest lens I had with me was an 85 1.8. The stairwell shots were done with the new 40mm 2.8, the head shot was done with the 85mm wide open. I will be going back to do this again soon with an 85 1.2, hopefully with better overall results. I'm kicking myself for not having any fast glass at the moment, I've been looking at getting a 35mm 1.4 or even a 50mm 1.4 for this sort of shooting in the near future. If anyone has any experience with this sort of shooting, feel free to chime in with input.
Please share any input on composition, lighting ideas, etc.
