Life with the 1.4

I just got a new 50mm F1.4 lens for my camera and it is pretty amazing.  I got the lens thinking this would be the only lens I will ever need! (and mostly because I was sick of having to use flash indoors). We were not instant best friends, but things are coming along nicely. It is not like any lens I have ever used before. It took me a little bit to move past my point and shoot ways into planning out my shot and adjusting my area of focus.

The designer in me also had a power struggle with the new lens. It does things for me that I was used to having control over in Photoshop. Placing blur and focus is now something the camera has started to do, it feels a little weird. I think I will get faster and better with this lens as time goes on. If my photos look this amazing now, I’m excited for what the future will hold.
