The opera 50mm F/1.4 first impressions with @amandapeixotoelkins were so good we couldn't choose just one image! πŸ™ŒπŸ» #teamtokina _________________________________ Canon 5D Mark III Tokina 50mm 1.4 FF Opera Focal Length: 50mm Exposure: 1/400 sec; F/1.4; ISO 160 MANUAL __________________________________ Amanda's impressions: "When I first started photography back in 2006, the Canon 50mm 1.4 was my only lens. I was obsessed with how beautifully it captured natural light. Fast forward to the beginning of my work with actors and magazines, I somehow completely moved away from the 50mm with the exception of rare uses here and there for family photos, trips and such. When @tokinausa contacted me about this project, I had goose bumps because it was like going back to the very beginning of my career for me. And what a beautiful piece of art this lens is! I did the whole shoot using only Tokina's 50mm 1.4, shot wide at 1.4. I shot both close ups, and full length shots and it performed beautifully! A portrait photographer dream, really! The shallow depth of field gives that yummy, dreamy and creamy look that I love. It brings the full attention to the subject because of it's incredible foreground to background separation. And from the shots I took, you can see how it helps soften the light even with direct sun light. At low light, after sun had set, I was able to shoot at 1.4 aperture, 1/80 sec... hand held and it still was tack sharp! It is so great that even in very low light conditions, I can capture really high quality images because of the wide aperture. Also, it has very little to no distortion, so it's quite flattering for portrait photography. The only draw back for me was the weight of it compared to the Canon 50mm 1.4. However... I shoot a lot using the Canon 70-200mm and that really is nothing compared to that. Plus, I work out. I can handle it! ha! :)" ________________________________ #opera50mm #tokina50mm #losangelesphotographer #naturallightphotography #celebrityportrait #onlocation #photographytips #cameragear #whatsinmybag #photography #beautyshot #freepeople #anthropologie #portraitphotography #portrait #photographer_stories
