nicely done, on all occasions. How is it that the 135 f2 seems to be able to keep your subject...all of your subject...in focus while eliminating the background? Most fast lenses used wide open have a comparatively narrow band of focus that shows fairly clearly on a face. I've seen so many shots in this thread that seemed as though the subject was highlighted for the camera then the rest was blown away. Amazing! I took some engagement pics last night with the 5D2 and 70-200 2.8IS at f4 or 4.5 and while the background had a very pleasant bokeh (bg was fairly distant as well) the couple clearly showed where the band of focus was. Either/or was in focus but not both, even squarely facing them or very nearly so.
I believe standing further away from the subject creates a wider area of focus on the subject. Usually some of the photos are cropped a bit closer to the subject so it seems like the camera was closer to them when the picture was taken.
This is what I can think of from what I've read about how bokeh works. Someone correct me if I'm wrong!
