FA 50mm f/1.4 ... when it's good, what's not to like?
Last week I visited a friend of a friend at the antique shop where he works, and I wanted to photograph a carving of a carousel horse, about 1/2 full size, that he had for sale. Not only did he take it out of the window for me so I could get its best side: he set it down on a backdrop a "real" photographer had set up to do some other work. (He said it would be OK.) This seem to have brought out the best in my sometimes-stubborn FA 50mm-- maybe it wants me to get it its own studio?
I took several shots with both the 50mm and the 21mm Limited and most of them came out really well considering I have never worked this way. I really enjoyed this little glimpse into the world of the studio, and thanks so much to the unknown photographer for the informal loan of the backdrop.
