Some new portraits with the V1 and 18.5mm f/1.8


I really like the Nikon 18.5mm f/1.8 for portraiture. It gives me a nice balance of DoF and sharpness. With some lenses for the larger formats, I have the feeling that I constantly need to think about how much I should close the aperture, to obtain sufficient DoF for human faces. The 18.5mm has enough DoF at wiede open, f/1.8. When shooting people I never close the aperture with this lens. IMO bokeh is nice, and the colors are what you expect from a Nikon. Awesome skin tones. But look for yourself. 🙂 UnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenanntUnbenannt Nikon 18.5mm f/1.8 is a cheap yet awesome lens, that I would recommend to anyone looking for Bokeh with a Nikon 1 camera. 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, Bruno! 🙂
    The 18.5mm is indeed a must have.
    I shoot RAW and use Lightroom to post process my photos. No intensive PP is involved, just fine tuning of white balance, contrast, exposure and color. That’s it! 🙂
