I thougth to myself that to introduce this blog to people id start by showing people some portraits i did of a friend last year, so without further bladering i hear by give you Johan Britz in Different Perspectives of a Friend.
This first image was made by using some off camera flash from the side, camera was in manual mode as well as the flash set to 1/32 to just give some extra light from the one side.
A plain brick wall in the back of our garden was used to photograph him against and to create a nice background that does not draw to much away from the subject.
I made sure to focus on the eyes to have pin sharp images and also used a f stop number of F8 for enough depth of field. I used a 70-200 L series lens to further enhance the depth of field in the image.
Gear Used: Canon 7D and a Canon 70-200mm USM IS 2.8
