Attempting that two-eyes in focus only (1.8/55 Sonnar @ f/1.8 pics)
1

It's been awhile since I attempted the shallow depth of field portrait with the two eyes in focus only like the one in here.

I tried doing it with the Sonnar 55. I even had it programmed as one of the memory settings----to shoot DMF (last picture). In a lot of cases with my other cameras I can only get one eye in focus. I think I need to look at my DOF calc on my iphone. I need to bracket distance and aperture as well, definitely more practice. Plus I think the model's face needs to be squared on to the camera not tilted. Having said that, I still like the results.
