Family Picnic

Every year my wife’s extended family meets for a picnic. Some family members travel to California from Arizona or Oregon, so this is no ordinary ‘family picnic’. This past weekend it also happened to coincide with Aunt Florence’s 92nd birthday, which we celebrated as well.

I brought down my Mamiya 645AF for the occasion. But throwing caution to the wind, I shot using my manual-focus 80mm f/1.9 lens. The bokeh on that thing is amazing! And along with that, the depth of field is so shallow, I didn’t always nail the focus. Ah well, photography always has trade-offs. I also decided to use up a few of my remaining rolls of Fujifilm Pro 400H in 220 format. For no better reason than it was just sitting there in the fridge (I usually shoot with Kodak Portra).
