105mm f/2 AF-D DC at Dickens Festival (Rochetser UK)
Dec 21, 2013

The venerable 105mm f/2 DC lens doesn't get too many mentions round here, so I thought I'd post a few from the recent Dickens Festival in Rochester (Kent, UK). Rochester is closely connected with the novelist Charles Dickens - his house at Gads Hill Place is nearby, and some of the town's buildings are described in his books. A twice-yearly Dickens Festival has grown up, where people take the opportunity to get into Dickensian costumes and parade through the streets. Great fun. I took the D700 along to the most recent one a couple of weeks ago, with the 105mm to pick out some of the characters. By shooting wide open (or nearly wide open), the lens suppressed the very busy background extremely well. I had the DC on 0 for these. Raw images processed through Lightroom 5.

There's a few more on my blog if you're interested.
