My Favorite Lens.


I still have many photos from the shoot with April Rose
I haven't actually posted. This is one of them.


I've received some inquiries about what lenses I used for this shoot. I'll take this little space to answer that. I used only one lens (which CBB finds amusing because not many photographers could survive with only one lens on a shoot) and that's my 50mm 1.4 lens.

It's my favorite lens because it mimics the human eye. It's my everyday lens. Ever since I got it, I hardly ever use my three other lenses (which is a bit sad, really).

My 50mm is sharp and fast that is why I love it.

There are a lot of people like me who are crazy about their nifty fifty. But there are those who also complain about it. The thing with the 50mm (or using its widest aperture/opening) is knowing HOW and WHEN to use it.

. . . . .

More photos from that shoot...







Added noise to these last two photos.

I LOVE the star/sparkle on her earrings on the first photo and how you focused on the fish net on the third photo! It's one thing to have a nice lens, but it's another to have a real talent. You have both!
