Very picture heavy!
I finally caved and picked up an 85mm f/1.8 a few weeks ago, although I wasn't completely sure how I felt about my decision. It's the most I've ever spent on a lens, and I already did have the 50mm f/1.8. Plus, 85mm on a DX camera just isn't the easiest focal length to work with... But having admired GatorDog/Alexis' photos for the longest time, and then hearing another photographer (on another dog forum) rave about the lens, I eventually decided to go for it.
Anyway, I didn't get to really test it out with Trent until this past weekend. And holy crap, I absolutely LOVE this lens. LOVE. The focal length is a little inconvenient, but it makes up for it in every single way. I love the quality, the speed, the creamy smoothness of the backgrounds, and how clean the images look. I'm just so thrilled with it.
Anyway, on to the pictures!
Just as I was complaining about how unseasonal my neighborhood looked, the leaves all began to fall.
Hey Trent, you have something stuck... all over your head
And posing, of course
And a stacked picture to end the day. The bad graffiti annoys me, but it was the best background I could find.
