thought i’d share a few photos from the #tumblrxgap geographer show i hosted at gap san francisco last week! got to meet the band, watch an awesome show with a really sweet crowd, and snapped a few photos of fashionable show-goers!
i shoot with a canon 5d mark ii with a 50mm f/1.4 lens (i also sometimes rent an 50mm f/1.2). i usually do pretty minimal editing in photoshop, so i have a feeling it’s more the camera, settings, and technique. the f/1.4 lens has a really shallow depth of field, so the subject will be really sharp while the background comes out super blurry. i’m also pretty specific about the lighting. my outfit photos are usually backlit so that the sun creates a halo effect behind me, which makes for a pretty dreamy feel. the early morning and late afternoon is usually best for that soft low light.
