Creative Portraiture

"Creative" may be a euphemism for how this portrait turned out, but in a way I kind of like it.

Aperture: f/3.5
Shutter Speed: 1/640
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 18 mm

That's my friend Miguel, eating a gyro near Canal Street. I think the focal area was too small, so I should have stopped down a bit just so that the crisp area that our eyes are naturally drawn too isn't so tiny. Especially since it was bright sunlight, I had no excuse to open the aperture up that wide... oh, well. It's an interesting effect, and one I'll probably experiment with more in the future.

  1. Shoot, my aperture is almost always wide open. It's fun. :-P I like this effect, and you could do some really cool stuff with this.
