I want wandering around Texas A&M's campus on Wednesday and snapped this candid portrait of a girl reading in a tree.
I was using my Canon T1i with a FD 50 mm f/1.4 with a necessary FD/EOS adapter (uses a 1.4X teleconverter to maintain infinity focus)
Shot using the aperture priority setting, a manually set f/ ~8, ISO - 100, and an exposure time of 1/250.
I like the overall effect I achieved in this photo. I know the background is overexposed, and something weird is happening to my subject. However I don't understand at all how my lens/camera combination worked to produce this aberration.
Are my bleeding highlights a product of poor manual focus? Are they because of the poor quality of the 1.4 teleconverter glass? Is it some product of my in-camera image processing? Is it just because my highlights are overexposed and clipping?
I would love to reproduce this effect, but sans the abberations in my subject.
Thanks in advance for any advice or insight.
