Just a few spring pictures to share with you. For some reason, many of the dogwood blooms look rough and I haven’t had time to look for nice ones.
But, I asked Raymonds if I could shoot some flowers in their backyard and they gave me the go ahead. They also have a bird feeder that stays occupied.
A “painted” version:
And the ever present azaleas:
Christy, this is for you and anyone else interested in the Canon 85mm 1.2L lens. (I’m renting it for a week.) It is a heavy lens (3.2 lbs). The weight alone is formiddable. So extremely different from the [edited to add] 50mm 1.8.
I got it today and had a few minutes over lunch to shoot a few outside. Since I have no victims in range these sample shots do not include humans. When you have the thing wide open at 1.2 you have to be very deliberate about your focus target.
Amazing bokeh, though.
In my kitchen, no lights except the overhead flourescent.
In the living room, just some window light.
Now I shall go lift weights to prepare myself for handling this thing on Saturday.
