My thinking was that my new Minolta MD Tele Rokkor 135mm F3.5 would be a good portrait lens. I had a 200mm lens (so same effective focal length) on my first ever SLR and I used that with good effect to take portraits.

I was wandering around All Saints' looking for things to photograph with my new lens and David (also a photographer) appeared. I said I was intending to use it for portrait photography so he offered to be my first subject and here he is.

F3.5, hence the rather shallow depth of field. I was focusing on his glasses (as the focus peaking liked the strong lines) so his eyes and nose are spot on but his left ear lobe is slightly out of focus. Nice.
