turn about

The 100 mm macro lens is also a brilliant portrait lens.

Devastatingly sharp and unforgiving, it doesn't miss a detail, or softly brush over it the way the gentler, kinder 50mm does.

Look a little deeper into my eye and besides the bloodshot lines you will also see the freckle at the bottom of my iris.

Canon rebel xti, shutter 1/8, f2.8, 100mm, iso800

For those following the animal rescue story from yesterday - The pigeon is still alive and seems to be doing well - hopefully we will be able to release it on the a warmer day sometime in the next week or so.

Photo Quotes

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
