I asked this young man to make some shots of him when working on some windows I was needing.
He accepted gladly and I move to his working area where - after all his employees are gone - I shot these pictures.
Usual equipment for a change: Canon 5D + ST-E2 + 430 EX + 580 EXII
However this time I used the umbrella with the 580 trying to make a soft light all over, avoiding strong shadows
I told him to concentrate on his work while sometimes I said to look at me.
However this time something that puzzles me happened:
As you can see in the pictures the guy is not at the center of the frame.
I was using one of peripheral points for focusing and f/3.5 to avoid a too shallow DoF.
And the pictures are not dam sharp. No. You can't see it but I can.
The central point in camera is, in fact, far precise than the others. I was not focusing and cropping but framing right away and circulating to get the point that was needed.
I almost forgot: I was using the 24-70 f/2.8 Canon.
