A Proper Portrait, 70-300VR
Oct 20, 2011

Some irresponsible forum members are having a troll fest celebrating the idea that I can't take a proper portrait with soft lighting. Well, I certainly can as this shot evidences. It wasn't done with a fancy 200 f/2. I used a cheap 70-300VR @ 70mm and "wide open" @ f/4.5. This shot is from the same set as "Barefoot in the Aspens" the image all the juveniles are making a fuss about. It's absence form their discussion says a lot about their motives. Believe me, I am happy with that image and know that many people have enjoyed it, some commenting that they liked the mottled lighting.

I am starting a separate thread here because I refuse to participate in a discussion that has gone haywire.

This image and "Barefoot" are from this set:

The remainder of images from my week in Aspen are here:

If anyone finds the general lack of civility in these forums to be undesirable, please say something about it in this thread.
