Zack Christ in Color

Charlene journal 5 Comments

Some months ago I posted a black and white portrait of Zack Christ. It appeared he rather liked the picture too. I love black and white portraits, and I try to make them all the time. But I am influenced too much by the colour of things, still unable to concentrate only on form and contrast, ignoring the bias of hue and shade. This rings true of this picture too. So here it is, with original impression and intention intact. Try again next time.

Flemming had the much anticipated  Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 on loan from Fuji Nordic for the last few weeks, so I borrowed it for a few minutes one sunny afternoon here in Copenhagen (we know what I’m like with gear, so I minimize contact with others’ equipment). The razor thin depth of field that is f1.2: at close range, controlling my breathing, I barely managed to get the desired 5 eye lashes in that left eye, in focus.  f1.2 is very sweet.
