A Different Dickens #3
When we were at Dickens on the Strand a few weeks ago, Larry Patrick and I were taking a break and took this woman's photo sitting nearby. It was right about the time we were talking about how you can isolate a subject from a background, especially shooting shallow depth of field with natural light in a nice open shadowed area. Now, I don't think either of us really thought too much about this photo; we didn't even try to get her email address. We just took a few photos each at f/2.8 and waved to her as she left. It wasn't until we both got home that we realized what a nice background we really had. We both remarked about it a few days later. Photo above processed only in Adobe Camera Raw; 150mm 1/320 sec at f/2.8, ISO 200.
