I recently purchased a refurbished Canon 50mm 1.2L lens directly from Canon. This lens has a ton of hype and I have been in the market for a good 50mm for a long time now. This lens lives up to the hype. I am still a firm believer in not "needing" the most expensive gear on the market to get a great a picture however. That being said, I still love the good stuff.
Mikey was my roommate for quite sometime (and an interesting time at that). When I first got into photography, we did a shoot similar to this one. The goal with this shoot was to really produce a good contrast in the subject as well as good a good laugh out of the people viewing it. Oh yeah, quality. I love a quality image. Hope you enjoy these shots! Feel free to share this link!
