Just a quick portrait in Steamboat Colorado. Funny how the non-posed / non-professional pictures are sometimes the best… Natural expression and so much in those beautiful eyes! Taken with my Canon 35mm f/2 lens. Usually 35mm is not a good portrait focal length as there can be distortion if you are not careful. Taken at f/3.2 which gives a good focus on her face while producing a nice background blur. I love this lens at is gives a classic organic feel – it sees the world how my eyes see the world. I tried the newest 35mm lenses and they are all too “clinical” for me. They have so much edge to edge sharpness that the image is flat and almost looks computer generated.
