I bought myself a new camera lens the day before yesterday. It’s a lens I’ve been drooling over; wanting to own for at least as long as I’ve known about its existence over a year ago. I finally bit the bullet, so to speak, and bought it.
The lens is a Canon 85 mm f1.2 L-series USM II.
The reason I wanted it is the ability to shoot in incredibly low light with natural light — my preferred mode — and get an incredibly shallow depth of field.
The fountain here was photographed on the patio of a restaurant, at night, without any additional lighting. The span between water spouts is approximately 2 inches. Notice also the blurring of the highlights on the water.
Can’t wait to try it on people!
