Every time I use my new 50mm f/1.4 I grow more fond of it. I know I’ve said this before, but after seeing this lens in action and seeing the amazing results of the Canon 85mm f/1.2L in my engagement photos, I’m absolutely loving the look of fast primes over zooms. Nearly every lens on my current wish list (read: will never be able to afford list) is a prime.
This shot is from a walk I took a few weeks ago in and around the Ramsay/Inglewood area in Calgary. Specifically, this bike rack belongs to Ramsay School which is one of the oldest in the city built in 1912. I thought the lone lock sitting on the rack made for an interesting subject and the shallow depth of field of the 50mm f/1.4 allowed me to really isolate it against the background. I added a bit of a graduated filter in Lightroom as well to further emphasize the subject.
