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.
Cropped from original image to remove white space on top.
Toned and sharped in Alien Skin Exposure 6.

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