Q and A
I really like shooting candid images of people. Hence I couldn't resist this. They are really such cute couple: Pastor Quentin and Amanda. Hence the title "Q and A". Taken at our recent church pot luck using the Canon 60d and the 135mmL at manual focus. I think the composition works. They are both smiling and unguarded. Also, the general form is pleasing to the eye. And the black and white treatment tends to give it a sense of timelessness. But I would have wished Amanda's shot was more sharp. Since I was shooting indoor without flash, I was forced to shoot wide open (my iso was already at 800)... I think f2.8 or wider. At f8 Amanda's image would have been sharper as I manually focused on Quentin. Perhaps I could have bracketed the focus and took the middle road, which would have been the average. Q would be less sharp and A would be a bit sharp. Also I think the bokeh should have been more blur. But this would exacerbate the shot. My thoughts. My afterthoughts. I'm hard on myself. But overall, I still like the image. I really like shooting candid images of people. Did I just say that? I have a strange mind.
