231 – Up so Close

This is Raimund. We work together and he is one of those guys constantly perstered by me and my camera. He’s a nice guy and he endures it stoically. This is another image with the Nikon 50/1.2 at f1.2, this time from very near. I have focused on the area below the left eye, and see how out of focus his nose already is. Post-processing was done in Capture NX and was mostly concerned with color temperature and control of contrast.

The Song of the Day is “Up So Close” from Cake’s 1994 album “Motorcade of Generosity“.
