    I think it's time I got a thread going for this one...

    I don't normally go for the 'single eye-lash in focus' look, but I kind of feel like that's what a thread for a lens like this should start with.

    Wide open at nearly the closest focusing distance.

    Great shot, were you shooting with tripod or handheld?

    Tripod. This is me all by my lonesome. I just got a new tripod recently and I was doing some testing. I preset the focus point and I have a wireless trigger for the shutter--2 second delay to put it in my pocket.

    Hanging out with some family after the ladies had a baby shower. We guys went out for a drink and popped in at the end. I had a bunch of lenses with me, but stuck with the 85 most of time. In a fairly dark room, f/1.2 & a FF sensor are a godsend (of course...I suppose I ended up adding grain in post), though I could have used a little more DOF at times...

    Ha! Well, when you encounter someone with that kind of style, you just gotta try to get a photograph of them.
