5/52 Afternoon at the Park

Sunny day out, wanted to try out my new 50mm 1.4. Both pictures are SOOC, f/2.8, first one was at SS 1/400, second at SS 1/800. I may have a little back focusing problem with this lens...

4/52 Product Shots

It was a class assignment to do product shots this week. Without a light tent/white box or any lighting equipment, I had to somehow come up with a way to do the shoot.

Inspired by this cheap setup:

According to one of the comments left by a reader, you could find polypropylene sheets at Joann's Fabrics, but the comment was left more than a year ago. I went to Joann's Fabrics anyway, unfortunately they did not have polypropylene. I got a poster board instead, with a 50% off coupon, this poster board cost 30 cents.

All shots were done outdoor at my front porch, no flash, handheld, f/8, SS 200.
