As promised I managed not to post a picture of the baby today. The dog and I were out on the frozen fjord the other day, and I think it’s safe to say that she enjoys the snow:)
One of the big advantages of working for the company that employs me is that I get to borrow some of the best photo equipment. Today I got to try an 85mm f/1.2 L II lens, and the extremely shallow depth of field posed some questions which I haven’t quite worked out how to answer.
