Zeiss 35mm f1.4 ZE mount lens for Canon

Stunningly detailed black and white photograph taken from the High Line Park in the MeatPacking District of NYC. This view is almost as interesting in color as it is in B&W with the exception of all of the tremendous fine details that your eye misses when the image is viewed in color. Shooting this image in B&W gives it a classic old-world look that makes it a truly timeless photograph and a familiar scene to native New Yorkers everywhere. Fine detail like this is perfect for a professional Pearl print… you’ll notice twice as much detail as you do on your computer monitor!

Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon lens

A perfect image of love and happiness for Valentines Day. I came across a cab driver taking a break to say goodbye to his wife before starting his shift and couldn’t resist capturing the moment. Taken with a Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon lens and cropped to a 1:1 aspect ratio. Shot at f/2.8. Looking back on this image, I wish I would have shot this at f/1.8 or f/2 to isolate my subjects a little more, but it’s still a wonderful photo that is full of feeling nonetheless.

Canon 135mm f2 lens on a Canon 5D Mark III for portraits

Seen in Central Park on a beautiful summer Sunday. Kindness. Happiness. Love. That’s what it’s all about.

I love the colors, the soft out of focus background, the off-center composition, and the general pleasant feeling this photo gives off. It was taken with a Canon 135mm f2 lens with a wide open aperture to pull the subjects out of the photo and melt away the background. This is my favorite lens for taking candid portraits. It’s light. It focuses extremely fast. And it’s not huge, white, or conspicuous like the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II, which is a fantastic lens, but just stands out too far in a crowd.
