On Saturday I ordered a brand new portrait lens that I will use extensively for engagement and wedding photography, senior portraits and any other kind of portrait work I’ll be doing. Much to my excitement and surprise it arrived in just a mere 4 days! I could barely contain my childlike glee as I unwrapped my new Canon 85mm f1.2 lens. Although it was pouring rain outside, I immediately attached the lens and headed out for a “mini” expedition in search of bright colors. One of my favorite things about spring is how (in what seems like overnight) the leaves burst from their buds, the flowers explode in an array of color and suddenly the male birds begin their continuous competition to win the females over with their beautiful songs. Enjoy the pics!
