I have had a friend asking me about lenses tonight. Zooms and primes, apertures, all that stuff – love a bit of Sunday night geekery. I pointed him to a post from earlier this year, a wedding which I shot completely using prime lenses, at very wide apertures giving lovely soft backgrounds. And here’s the one that stands out for me, taken on a Canon 35L 1.4 prime lens. Enough width to see the complete picture, enough softness to give it a surreal feel, and enough detail to make it snap.
