Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro Planar used on a Canon 5D Mark III

I adore shallow depths of field and a soft out of focus backgrounds that pull the subject out of the photo towards you, and that’s exactly what’s happening in this photo.

My focus point was on the center of this chain, and if you zoom in and look closely, you’ll see an incredible amount of detail on the chain itself. I like the composition too… I think it’s an interesting photo that really demonstrates the strengths of the lens that I happened to be using at the time, the Zeiss 50mm Makro Planar. The aperture was wide open at f/2 for this photo, which is why the bokeh is so beautiful, and why the photo has the effect that it does.
