I am not sure how many of you get the He-Man referential pun in the post title. Well, if you were a 90s kid, chances are that you did. But in case you were never the kind to watch cartoons or some such, watch this video to get an idea of what I am talking about.
Now that that's done with let's get on with the actual post content. Today, I share with you what are arguably two of my best portrait shots in monochrome. They were shot in the last couple of months with the 50mm prime lens.
The shots illustrate the advantage of having a fast lens and consequently a large aperture (f/1.8 in this case). The quality of the bokeh in the first snap is also indicative of the power of the lens.
f/1.8, 1/100, ISO 200
f/1.8, 1/60, ISO 500
If you are not hooked to B&W photography even after seeing these snaps, I am sorry to tell you that you are beyond help, my friend. Until next time then. Ciao!
