it’s all in the eyes ~ Tacoma Photographer ~

040109_11202We were all piling into the Hummer, on our way to The Great Wolf Lodge for a few nights of waterpark fun….when all of a sudden the UPS truck pulled up with my new Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF Lens.   I was so happy!  I will use this lens primarily for portrait photography.  It will give me a good working distance 10-12 feet from my subjects, but most importantly will eliminate the unflattering facial distortion wide angle lenses are notorious for, while avoiding the compression of long telephoto lenses give. There are some pros that swear 85mm is the portrait sweet spot.  I have a few shoots scheduled this week.  I can’t wait to try it out.
