Just by giving some glances and nods this lady was putting herself in the right poses to have her photograph taken. She did this while she had a conversation with somebody. We sat a few tables away from the couple and the photo’s taken have something like shots out of a movie in my opinion.

This is by the way a good demonstration why you should go for good glass first rather than upgrading your camera bodies to fast without even considering some fine lenses.

Here are some technical data of this shot for you:

Camera: Canon 400D 
Lens: Sigma 70-200 2.8
Shutter Speed: 1/100 of a second
Aperture: f8.0
Focal Length: 200mm
ISO Speed: 400
