Started experimenting with one light setups again. Shot with a single (cheapo) softbox at high enough shutter and aperture to kill the background.

Maybe it's just me, but at this viewing angle and with the black background, his upper and lower body appear strangely offset against each other.

 

On the whole, I like the shot though.

Maybe he's a contortionist. ;)

 


 

Random street stuff in Harajuku.

 

Some shots are manual focus because the 100L macro hunts for focus a bit more than other lenses, especially in a dynamic environment such as a moving crowd.

Are you using the focus limiter switch?  Setting it to ignore the first 0.5m of its focal length helps the speed and hunting a bit.  It still not great but a bit improved.

Lol. I shot it with a 135mm lens, actually. I found this M42 gem ( http://www.pentaxforums.com/userreviews/sears-135mm-f2-8-auto-m42.html ) for $40.

 

It's probably because he was slightly slouched in the chair, and I rotated him in LR.
