The DoF was intentional -- the only thing behind it is padded/carpeted walls (it's a recording studio). It's also framed very tightly on the left side because directly next to the neon is a really loud Hendrix poster.

edit: The DoF is very shallow on APS-C it seems, but it's exactly what I was loking for. It's the perfect length for me for candids (I prefer keeping a distance, Chicago is full of "questionable" characters) and great for headshots, or half-body at a reasonable distance. Can't wait to travel somewhere else with it.

And don't forget to bring Chris Hansen and the camera crew with you.
Course, can't forget the crew! Apparently its gonna rain tomorrow though. I'll be sure to bring the Nikon 14-24 to compare.

You know, Disney routinely displays violence, poverty, and sexuality. Chill out.

Thread Starter 

It's nothing new, but it's new to me and I enjoyed learning about this photographer:

I've made an executive decision:

I seriously need to learn to retouch photos better. Anybody can pull something up in PSE9, run it through quick auto, make a couple of other adjustments and improve the quality of most pictures -- I really want to be able to pick like 5-10 shots out of however many I shot for the day and really just make them pop.

I took a 400 level digital photography course in college after a couple of years of film classes (I believe I did most of my work with Photoshop 7 - not Elements, PS7), and switching to PSE9 was a bit of a change because things were a bit more streamlined (or outright hidden/different/gone). Ugh, damn my requirement to constantly attempt to better myself!

How close does the 135L focus? Anyone have a shot at it's closest focusing distance?

Its UNBELIEVABLY close. You can fill someones face with it (and thats on full frame), and the background will be just nothing and the nose will be out of focus.
