Portrait 21

Trying for perfection, I used Ilford Pan F 50 speed B&W only to have a cloudy day. The result was lots of metering, shallow focus and hand held down to 1/15-1/30 sec shutter speeds. You can tell the other images in this series. Oh well! Minolta X-9 35mm SLR/Promaster 28-70mm telephoto lens

Artist Reply: Thanks! By the time I metered down to hand hold speed I was at my most shallow depth of field. Appreciate nice comment!
