Mutual Respect

There is a rule in my studio.  It is called the Rule of Mutual Respect.  This is what it means…

If I ask someone to pose a certain way for a photo, and they say they don’t want to, I won’t ask again.  On the other hand, if they ask me to photograph them a certain way, and I don’t want to, they don’t ask again.

New F2.0 Lens

I received my new f2.0 lens from B&H today.  Impressively small for a “normal” lens.  I expected it to be as big as the zoom lens I broke last week.  It’s difficult to tell from photos, but this is a great size for a prime 50mm equivalent lens.
