Venla and waders

I made a major lens investment by acquiring  Canon EF 85 1.2 L lens to take portraits.  So far there has not been much opportunities to use it but here is Venla, my grand daughter in a toy shop.  You can see well the famous bokeh of the lens.  The picture is sharp in her eye which is important in portraits.


Below is another picture by the same lens.  Those two small flying waders just happened to be in the shallow focus distance.


Both pictures at aperture 1.2. (Canon 5D)

    There really is not much DOF in Venla picture, full frame body, 85 mm, 1.2 aperture, shooting distance 2 meters gives about 4 cm of DOF.

    Thanks for comments.
