My friend Janey is an up and coming singer/songwriter. Actually maybe you've seen her singing and dancing for the intro to Friday Night Football on TSN...? Anyway she wanted a new promo/head shot so I said we could definitely do something!This was definitely her favorite capture of the evening. I think it was pretty lucky. Using the 85 1.2 lens wide open, the DOF was extremely shallow, and with it being such a slow lens to focus, I knew capturing a good hair-whip would be next to impossible. So I asked her to pose in her 'ending position', focused there, then had her do the hair-whip.... and hopefully she ended up coming to rest where we had set the focus at! Forunately this one worked.
