For the last post in this old west series, I feature Kenzie, who finally breaks out of her supporting role. She was in yesterday’s post and a few others but always in the background. I first met Kenzie at a Drink and Click — her look morphing from film noir to a western.
She didn’t have a badge, but she looked sheriff-like to me, especially in the middle of the main street with a gun in hand. Notice the church? Its doorway framed Kayla in the first image, bring the series full circle.
I used the Fujifilm GF110mm f2 for both pictures, wide open at f2. While the closeup has a smoothly blurred background, it’s not as desirable in the first photograph. The trees and shrubs around the church look nervous and distracting to me. I made this observation regarding this lens in an earlier post. Am I being too picky? It is a $2800 lens, after all. Portrait lens specialists chime in.
I enjoyed this Precision Camera event enough that I attended a couple of others. I’ll blog about those sometime in the future.
