I took this picture a few years ago at a family party. It’s one of many examples why prime lenses (fixed focal length) are so great: large aperture catching all the light, sharp foreground on a blurry background letting the subject ‘speak’. Absolutely fabulous for portraits.
This is also a fine example of why camera bodies are not that important: the D70s is now 6 years old. It’s the lens, stupid! Or even better: It’s you, stupid!, because even the finest camera and lens will shoot bad pictures if the scene is boring.
