cream and sugar.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love a lens more (the 50mm 1.2 L), I rented the 85mm 1.2 L and tried it out this weekend.  (insert sound of jaw dropping and hitting floor here).  Wow.  The creaminess of the bokeh is so delicious I just want to sop it all up and devour it.  The sugar?  Well, that’s my sweet little model I have the pleasure of photographing every year.  She is growing up before our eyes and just gets more and more beautiful each time I see her.  Needless to say, it’ll be hard to let this rental go but I will be buying it asap.  I hope the 50 doesn’t get too jealous. 😉  Lovin’ the rainbow sunflare on the last shot and, nope, it wasn’t photoshopped in.  There was very, very little done to these images other than converting to b&w and a minimal antique effect on the last.  Hope you had a great weekend!! xo

I adore this shot!!

um, yeah. beyond.
