Martin Strauss's picture

playmate at kasteel van hoen

i was shooting Kim in a castle (Kasteel van Hoen) in the southern part of Belgium.
I needed to tick to my old Canon550D and a very shiity 17-40L f/4 lens, i really needed to think around the corner to get a nice shoot from her...so i was using the reflection on glasses to get something special in the pic.
Important thing here is: Keep dark areas on her face (especially the eyes) to get a crystal sharp spot there and still show both: the model and the reflected surface

Canon 550D
40mm · f/4.0 · 1/400s · ISO 100

nice shot, but how do you get a focal length of 50mm and an aperture of 2.0 with an 17-40L f/4?
I am a Nikon user but curious how Canon can do that;-)?

amazing shot. Love the colors and lighting. It be a great poster!
Your work is always great Mr. Strauss.

This photo is fantastic! Bravo
