C&C If You Have a Moment
Jul 31, 2011

I wanted to try the Canon 100 2.8L as a portrait lens on the 5d2, so I set up a quick black backdrop and had this man strike a few poses for me. I took it back to my cave and did a few quick dodges, burns, and curves to pop the image and adjust some color.

If you think Photoshop ruined photography or something like that, I don't need to hear the complaints. I just simply want some C&C on the image. Do you like the color? Do you like the dark tones and his highlighted shoulders separating him from the background (aka: avoiding the "floating head"? Do you like the framing? Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I'm looking to move more into portrait photography as an interest to get me away from weddings.

The 100L felt great as a portrait lens BTW and was super sharp to begin with before adding a tiny bit in LR3. This was originally a RAW, converted to JPEG as ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/250 sec.

Click on the image to enlarge it to see how it looks up close.
