Since early March I've had that 35mm 1.8 lens mounted on my camera except for two ocassions.
I've got a killer 70-200 2.8 Nikkor lens that I used to love like nothing else...
It's become a paperweight on my desk.
I'm in love with that 35mm.
There's no zoom... you gotta 'compose' with your feet...
Without question... if you're sporting a 35mm fixed focal length lens you gotta get in there to get the shot.
That's what I love doing.
It puts me in 'the zone' when I shoot with it...
There is no substitute for 'close.'
I no longer have telephoto envy when I see guys sportin' those 600mm lenses...
Those are for shooting eagles.
I shoot people.
I shoot them up close...
Because that's where I want to be.
I shoot them wide open with a really tight depth of field.
I shoot people the way that I see them.
The pictures I get...
That's the way that people see me.
