A Prize Is In The Mail l For Me Silly

As  a newborn photographer I have two lenses that I rely on constantly.  I love my 85 1.2 lens.  But I have to be at least 3 feet away from my subject.  And when you are photographing sweet little newborns in pretty little props, or on a bean bag for that matter, that just won’t do.  I want to be hands on that baby in an instant in case he / she decides that moving and shaking is much more fun than sleeping peacefully.  So for the most part I rely on my 24-70 2.8 lens.  It is a work horse.  But I am just not getting things exactly how I want them.  Every good photographer has a awesome selection of lenses to turn to for portraiture.  And I have decided it is time to add another to my collection  A little nifty 50 1.4 is on it’s way to my door step.  (I Love you UPS man).  Every lens has it’s own strengths and weaknesses.  I am hoping that my new 50 will give me the creative freedom I have been looking for.  Having a lens that isn’t so long and heavy won’t be such a bad thing either.  We’ll see!  I love presents.  Even if I buy them for myself.
