I will admit it I am a super shallow dof portraiture junkie!


Now I want to see your portraits that have been lit with mono/speedlite/constan​t light sources they can be in studio or on location;)

Rules:

1.) Camera exif
2.) Lighting sources and setup info (BTS images are welcome)
3.) Any extra gear used to get the shot


5DMK2
Sigma 50 Art 1.4
@ f1.6
160th
ISO 100
Hoya Variable ND (set @ 4 stops)
E640/22" socked bd boomed above on camera axis
Silver reflector @ chest level
B800/Med gridded softbox camera right (had to improvise cause I couldn't find my 7" reflector)
B800/30 degree grid camera left aimed at wall

f/2.8 on medium format makes for quite a shallow depth of field, though the transition between focus/oof areas appear smoother than on 35mm.

Hehe yes I hope some other will get in here too, nice thread ;). I added some more bulbs to my DIY ring light, I was struggling to shoot at f/2.8 and I don't have faster lenses on the Hasselblad.

I am following but haven't got any studio images with a shallow dof yet :)

Can I ask how many lights you normally use? Or do you use ND filter?

Very nice! Really like how you got the entire right eye in the light, and perfectly have the shadow along the nose. I keep messing that part up.
