Soft Focus Portrait Close Up

Aug 04, 2014

It is hard to focus up close when people can't stay still, though she did well! This was a focus test and then after it I asked her to pose, but it looked better the shot where she was waiting. This is my second time to use the lens. It doesn't feel too soft.

I'm not a view camera focusing expert, it's all new to me. But I like looking at an enlarged image on a computer screen more than ground glass!

And a photo showing a bit of the tilt:

And here's the same lens but with window light and more "straight from the camera":
