tell me what you think
kinda plain. maybe if you have someone holding it.
It'd also be better if there were beads of condensation on the can I think.
Showing, not telling. Don't use a giant aperture to force your viewers to look at something. Yes, it's part of composition, but it shouldn't be all of your composition.
would've been better if it was more biased toward the bottom right.
tonal range is great though, great contrast. the white part of the table though is quite destracting. you should burn it in more to darken it up or crop it out like i mentioned above because your eyes move to it and there's nothing there.
giant aperature was due to light issues (i was just sitting in a chair with my camera...you bring up a good point though....when is the right time to use such aperatures?
When you absolutely have to. ie: you need a certain shutter speed and you cannot get it any other way
thats half the reason i love this lens because i can handhold shots indoors...i guess i should bust out the tripod if im not doing people though
Things generally get better as you stop down.
Most people complain about the lack of depth of field when shooting wide apertures -- and that's becauase they've been forced to shoot wide open by the lighting situation.
Lenses that are great wide open cost much much much MUCH more than others. Even then, they still get a little better by stopping down -- though the perfect lens would be the same -- read: great -- at any aperture
yeah before this 50mm the biggest i have shot at was f/4 (zooms..blah) and now at 1.8 my dof is crazy..someones nose might be in focus but their eyes arent..i kinda like it sometimes...im just an amature playing around
