What's your "Bokeh Monster"
Sep 11, 2012

I thinking about a lens to use for 2/3 to full body portraits that can crush a background into bokeyness. I'll probably get an FD mount 135mm f/2.8 because you can hardly beat the price and I have an old Ftb camera and a few other FD lenses that I still like to use now and then.

Just wondering what others use for this kind of loosely-cropped blurred-out portraiture.

Hoping some of you will have examples you'd like to share, and perhaps some pics with oof highlights to show off your pretty bokeh balls.
