How can I take picture like these?
May 2, 2012

I am highly inspired by this photographer's images. I really enjoy them. I have always tried to find a way to reproduce them.

Without looking at his gear list, would you be able to say what is his lens (focal length), size of sensor, digital, etc?

I haven't ran into images like these and I want to be able to do it.

My question is: How can I produce images like these? He has a bit of distance from his subjects, yet the focal plane is still very shallow. What gear would I need assuming that I already that photographer's eyes for composition.

oh, disregard the swirly bokeh he has on his lens. I hate swirly bokeh. So distracting to my eyes.
