    Thumbs down Scarcer than hen's teeth ...

    Believe me, if I had the model, you'd get your Christmas wish. As sassy as these college girls are, they get uppity when you want to do "provocative" photography. Sexy Santa's Helpers are a bit more rare than Santa himself, that's for darn sure.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    Red face I shot a Christmas play ...

    I got an invitation to a Christmas play and took the low light lens to try and capture its flavor.

    With only a couple exceptions (noted) Here is a series of the shots, mainly using the CZ 135mm f/1.8 lens














    Rokinon MF 85mm f/4

    Those look really good, Don. Sony looks to have improved in the higher ISO ranges. Nice work. That CZ really sings, I can see it here.

    Talking Christmas lights ... ON!

    Here's a lengthy exposure of our house, as you see it when rounding the corner ... with the musical light show FROZEN w/ the first dusting of snow of the season. God, I hate when the temperature drops like that. Cold enough to "freeze" light!

    A dog-eat-dog Christmas

    Well, the dog begged and begged ... "Don ... let's do a Christmas portrait like you did with Trakker, last year."

    Hey, who am I to argue with logic like that?

    So ... I let him pick out the lens ... which was kind of funny, as it turned out to be just the one I wanted to test, anyway ... the Rokinon MF 85mm f/1.4 and down we went, to get the Christmas tree as a backdrop.
