So lately I've been noticing that one of my favorite things is to take full-body shots of people at f/1.4 with my 35L. I love the dreamy, floating look that length + aperture can give. I know the lens length makes a difference in just how "dreamy" those lower apertures look, but I'd love to see some full-length shots from everyone else of people below f/2!

I'll start... please include the lens and aperture :)

35mm at f/1.4:

I've always struggled with full-length portraits. But this is one of my all-time favorites:

Lovely work as usual Abbie. Really am a big fan of your style. Also, Charro, that's a great shot above. Love the colours. This is the only two I have access to at the moment due to this being a brand new computer (arrived yesterday after my last one took a trip downstairs :( ) I lost everything on my last one so these were on Flickr.

These aren't as 'dreamy' as I would like but definitely going to try and do more. I don't have wider than the 50mm any more but I do have a hankering for a 35mm again sometime soon.

50mm F1.2

Thank you so much for the kind words -- and that second shot of yours is a stunner! I love that orange! Thanks for contributing! :)

I know there are more folks out there with some good shots...

I have a lot, but here are a couple of recent ones.

This is the 85L at F-1.4. Not quite full body but close enough I guess.

Ive always been such a fan of full length portraits. Majority of these are 2 shot brenizers (but the initial exposure was still just one full body portrait) with a 35L or 85mm

I love that first one!

Here's another from me that's reminding me to appreciate the beautiful spring weather we have right now!
