That Old Tree

That Old Tree
I bought a new lens earlier in the week. The Canon 85mm f/1.8. Good for everything really, but I will probably use it for portraits and cool Brenizer method photos mostly. This was the first photo(s), I took. Just for the fun of it I placed myself on the spot from where I normally shoot the old tree with the wide angle lens. From that position it took 49 photos to cover the Swedish Whitebeam with the new prime lens! The effect you see here is what happens when PS tells you "scratch disk full".

Hah! Funny. This is what we call "art."

I nearly got the Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens but decided on the 50mm f/1.4 lens instead. Loving it so far. It will be interesting to compare with what you do.

Jag gillar lapptäcket! Gluggen du skriver om äger jag sedan ett par år. Använder objektivet ytterst sällan då jag inte ofta tar porträtt men det är ett mycket fint objektiv för den relativt ringa slant det kostar. När jag plockar fram det blir jag sällan besviken (annat än på närgränsen.)

Good purchase. It's a brilliant portrait lens. Plus, you can create such inventive images as this one.

I uploaded the finished version to flickr. You can see it here.
