Taupo Camp - Best Portraits

Lens: 160.0mm, 1/40s, f/5.0, ISO: 1250

I took lots of portrait style images during the weekend during times when there wasn't a lot of action. This one I think is my favourite. This is Phillipa Henry captured while working on team patterns (I think).

Lens: 85.0mm, 1/100s, f/2.0, ISO: 800

Robert Meleisea wasn't having a bar of me taking a portrait of him. He was wearing this hoodie which could have made a really nice shot but he kept hiding and this was the best I could get.

Lens: 180.0mm, 1/100s, f/5.0, ISO: 1250

Simon Davis was playing around and I managed to capture this out of focus shot of him which is kind of cool. It happened too fast for the lens to auto-focus. A nice "accident" really.

Lens: 300.0mm, 1/100s, f/5.6, ISO: 1250

Nice image of Michael Davis in thought while resting.

Lens: 85.0mm, 1/400s, f/1.8, ISO: 640

A nice sharp low ISO clear image of Kara Timmer looking up and sizeing up the high kick target plate prior to her run up and kick. I love the sharpness, colour and catch-lights in her eyes. This is someone to watch out for - she is very talented.

Bad form as I don't know this person's name. He was one of the extras helping out during the training. If you know, please leave a comment and I'll update this post.

More portraits to come....
