Springtime is swingtime!

Day 97 was a really nice day out. A bit cool, but sunny, and a great day to hang out with the kids in the back yard after work. Well, the kids and the camera :)


Let me say that focusing on a kid on a swingset is *not easy*, but the 50mm f/1.4 performed admirably given the tough conditions. These pictures were both back-lit by the sun, so a nice wide aperture to help bring in the faces was a help. I shot this with no light modifiers and no fill flash, so these are mostly SOOC, although I did run a desaturated high-pass filter on them to help with the contrast and clarity a bit. I like the effect in portraits.
