One of my favourite portraits of my daughter. Used a Minolta MD 50/1.4 with NEX 5.

I love the first one.
But there's something a little strange in this, maybe one among (or a combination of) noise,sharpening and jpeg output?
What iso speed was it shot at?

thank you and very astute observation Aanything!
it was taken as jpeg at ISO1000 with EV-0.7 ( which had needed just before, and I had not yet reset ) and there was no light coming from the front. The face was way too dark, I had to light it up in PPing and that must have caused what you can see. I am not good at PPing, that I am on an uncalibrated monitor of a 15'' notebook doesn't help neither. Here another intend but I am not sure if it is any better:



best greetings,
andreas

What looked strange was the contrast between the noise on her face (and on the faces in the background) and the noiseless bright areas in the background, probably.
Anyway, lovely portraits (all of them, but this one in particular), and beautiful background rendering from the old tak.

thank you Klaus. In her expression I can see a few very typical Balinese attitudes that move me

Great shoot Ian!

Cheers, was a lucky one, she laughed at just the right moment. J8 is a great lens for portraits, all sonnars are imho, the smoothness just works so well for people.

Excellent catch and processing, Ian, get a frame!

Cheers Bill, you start to cherish pictures of family more as they get into later life, you know you will want to have them for memories one day.

My grandfather, J. Dean, 92. Unfortunately, he is currently in the hospital with aspiration pneumonia, and may very well pass away soon. I'm glad I took the time and used one of the few remaining frames of Polaroid T55, to take this shot this summer.

Gosh, don't know what that is! I did some spotting on her face, so maybe a slip?

That's a beautiful polaroid rawhead, real vintage look, I like it a lot.

Nice to see film is still alive, for me, the best portrait lenses are all old lenses with character and the tonality of film can be so beautiful for portraits.

So much beautiful portraits in this thread.
Congratulations to every photographer.

I find especially wonderful Rawhead's last photography.
