new lens, 1 for CC

I haven't had a chance to play too much, this is one of the first ones I got with my new 50 the other night. This is right after sunset, if you can believe it! I need to learn more about white balance...how does his skin tone look?

I have to say...I thought the clarity/quality of the 50mm 1.8 would not be as good as my 100mm 2.8 macro, which is pretty much the only lens I've been using, considering the $$$ difference ($600 vs $130) but I don't think I see much difference at all! :shrug:

Any CC appreciated...

Nice catchlights! I think that the focus may have fell on his hair actually. I could be wrong though. WB is something I struggled with for a long time. What do you have your WB set to? I haven't had any comments on my WB lately, and I set it to Cloudy. If it were me, I'd warm it up some.

Looks to me like it is slightly underexposed and needs some warming.

I've never used the 100mm macro, but I would think they would be on par with one another. The 100 will give you more compression, but the 50 gets you a shallower dof. Different lenses with different capabilities Smile
