Magic Kingdom: Dumbo

    Newer Older

    Experimenting with different angles for these statues, I've really tried to as of late to isolate the subject as much as possible.

    The Sigma 50mm 1.4 is a great lens, but being so wide open it makes getting what you want in focus super tough, as the focus line is hair thin.

    Focus peaking helps a lot, here, as you can see what you're targeting, but if you move even just a little bit it gets thrown off.

    Manual focusing can be fun and I had a good time trying it out on both the 7 and the Sigma. I can't wait to go back and try to refine my skill even further.

      Looks great and the bokeh is really nice.

      Yeah, you really have to get used to 1.4. Now imagine using it on a moving target :D I've gotten so much better at anticipating with it. Great job on this! I think you did an excellent job isolating Dumbo.

      I like the progressive focus throughout the shot! It leads your eyes right to Dumbo's face. Beautifully done!
