You could probably do that kind of DOF with like 70-200 mm lens at a fast aperture setting.

That shot was actually taken with this:



Olympus C5050 - loved that camera. And the gaussian blur give a slightly different 'bokeh' than using a long lens with a fast aperature. To me it always added a surreal dream like quality to the image.

I do not agree that a portrait must show the face!

[QUOTE=half_bent;13589057]I do not agree that a portrait must show the face!

You are technically correct as I would have entered a maternity portrait framed to show the extended belly and the embrace of hands. A portrait really reflects the emotion through light painting (from full to shaddow detail) and isn't limited to the face, but the face is historically the primary emotional feature as it reflects the affect.

Hey, spock! I used to live in San Marco. That picture is from that area, right? Isn't that the hospital in the background?

That's very close to Jacksonville Landing and the main street bridge actually. Riverwalk I think it's called. That in the background is some fancy hotel I think.
