This is another portrait of my cat in autumn. I took also this shot with my

Helios 40-2 85mm 1.5, an old M42 russian lens together with my Canon 5D

MarkII.

I shot wide open to get this swirling bokeh, even if you close a bit the

blades it give immediately a dramatically different bokeh feeling.

I took this picture at the gold hour after the sun disappeared so that I

could have lovely golden tones on the ground and my cat's fur :)

Like for the other shot, the big challenge here was to shoot handheld with

low shutter speed and to get the cat's face razor sharp while focusing

manually with such a shallow depth of field (f/1.5!!)!

I hope you'll like it!
