I had a chance to photograph at a bar today a very very handsome (to me anyway) German guy. Turns out he's both a scientist and a model. Some things are not fair :-)
Looking around it's always interesting how DOF/bokeh, lens, distance to subject and distance subject to background can help create great backgrounds.
The first shot this was a white door with some details but they are gone. Which is exactly what I want. It looks like a studio shot but it isn't, it's outside:
The next is a hangar type door with metal bars. The whole door flexes/rolls up.
And the city background with some blow out:
All shot with the DA70mm. No cropping but some post.
The first shot is pretty much straight forward with no adjustments.
