Out of my depth (of field)

Been trying to play a little more with shallow depth-of-field using a regular lens, rather than a Lensbaby. Here are a couple examples from a shoot last fall with Vassanta that I just got around to editing. These were made with the Sigma 30mm f1.4, but I've been encouraged by the results to the point where I'm considering the Canon 50mm f1.4... don't think I can justify another thousand bucks for the f1.2 though.

Speaking of editing, I'm happy to report that I'm very close to "catching up" on editing and getting images owed to models out. A very light shooting schedule, combined with some workflow simplifications seems to be helping. I'll probably keep the shooting light so I don't get too far ahead of myself again. Plenty of other things on my proverbial "to do" list...
