Thanks for the input! I have to apologize about this topic showing up over and over. I posted it first then it was marked spam for some reason (maybe my name?) and then I got frustrated and posted it again.

Yeah. The 1st one was shot with a 50mm 1.2 L, which I, at the point in time of when I was shooting it, did not fully comprehend the magnitude of how ffing thing the 1.2 DOF was. The original image perspective was a bit off as you said, as I did a meh crop job. I was trying to do the ‘rule of thirds’ to it, by using the grids in Lightroom, but it didn’t work out so well. I think I left my hood at home for this one too. *world’s saddest violin playing*

The other two, soft. Agreed. My 7D was in the shop, so I was borrowing an antiquated 450D with a 17-55mm f/2.8. I recall when shooting, being frustrated with the focus system. Compared to the 7D the 450D is weaksauce. Any soft issues is me being a moron and not practicing with the 450D before jumping into a shoot.

(Though, to be fair, it was a mock shoot. I was filming a shoot for a school project, so it was a shoot inside a film shoot).

Thank you all for your advice! I do a lot of my stuff hand held because I like the freedom it affords, hence why I like to invest in large apertures and the like.
