At Last

For those following along my equipment changes you may know that a couple years ago I sold my 35mm f/1.4L Canon lens to my brother and bought two different lenses, a 24mm 1.4 and a 50mm 1.2. I sold the 24mm a while ago and it helped pay for my trip to india and buy the hasselblad and just recently after dealing with a frustrating bout with a fraudulent ebay account buying the 50mm I finally the 35 back on my 5d again. I’m not sure why I ever parted ways with it in the first place. The other lenses were great too but there was just something in the 35 that I started to really miss. I feel its really just the perfect lens for me, its not too wide and not to long its just the perfect focal length for me. The 1.4 aperture gives me more than enough play room as far as DOF is concerned and the lens is just beautifully sharp and has a little hint of a vignette when wide open which complements my style nicely. So at any rate, welcome the newest member of my photography tools family. You can look forward to seeing images from it soon I’m sure.

Now I just need to take my 5D in for a sensor cleaning, I made the mistake of getting impatient and trying to clean it myself like an idiot and its just a mess now and it shows when I’m shooting at smaller apertures. So it goes. OH and in other news, looks like I will be traveling again but more on that later ;) Pardon the lack of activity around here lately, been swamped with projects and work but that should change here pretty soon…

    The 50mm f/1.8 lens has become quite honestly my exclusive lens. I already have added weight on my D90 with the battery pack grip I have attached to it so being able to rely on one lens that really challenges you to be more creative with taking shots is always the adventure.

    Congrats on the purchase and looking forward to your photographs with it.

    It looks to be a good partner on the 5D, the size seems right to me. It’s good that you’re only using one lens.

    Looking forward to seeing some images from it soon.

If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
