First Portrait for April Apr 1, 2005
So I picked up the new Canon "b&w line filter" lens for the SLR and gave it a go last night. Overall I'm fairly pleased with the results, but I couldn't get very crisp results with it — probably because of the f1.04 aperture though there's more depth-of-field than I expected. The lens gives a fairly unique effect and I'm sure it'll get overused in the short term. In this case the face is a little over-exposed here but I think it helps. As well I cheated a bit and added the grain in Photoshop.
