    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.

    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.
