Kali in the Grasses

Today was the first day that Kali went outside, so I went out with her too.. And my new 50/1.2. I got this photo, and I really like it a lot!

It is funny because somebody commented on one of my previous photos that I should get a 50/1.2 to take photos of the cat. Not funny. I think you jinxed me into it. Though, in all fairness, I am in love with this lens, and as you can see, the bokeh is.. Incredible.


I hope you guys Enjoy. :)

    Nice shot Brock, even if it is a cat (we need more cat pictures on the internet). ;-)
    She really does look sweet.
    I have a 50mm f/1.4 and it is one of my favorite lens, too.
    Have a great week!

    Great, like the POV!
  • Joerg Meinhardt 3y

    Great colors and light, great sharpness, and indeed great bokeh. And strong presence!
    Welcome to the manual focus world!!!

    A great shot of Kali, and a very good looking cat also. Perfect shot in the green grass with an obvious good lens, tack sharp and the bokeh is perfect.

    Joerg Meinhardt Thanks! I am already in love with them. It takes me time to focus, especially at 1.2, but it is great, because I already think so much more about composition than before, and I haven't touched my 24-105 in a week :P.

    Dwight Thanks, I really do love the bokeh of this lens, it is a little circular at the sides.

    is this also brenizer or is it just the 50mm that makes it so magical
  • Rosane Miller 3y

    Pretty sweet cat, lovely image.
  • Wayne Young 3y

    Great lens, and a greater catch (of the cat)!!

    The fastest lens I have is the f/1.4 85mm sigma!
    I'll dream on the f/1.2!! :)

    Lovely shot from a lovely lense, but hardly beginner kit or technique. Seeing as I found this in a beginner group.
  • Wade Brooks 3y

    Lucien Hughes Brock is a high school student, so I would call him a beginner. Yes, he is very good.
