Hanging out with friends after church on Sundays has become more of a tradition now. It’s a great way for me to practice my focusing skills with the Hasselblad with tons of friends as models! I got a chance to test the CF 180mm Sonnar lens hand held if it’s something that I can do for long periods of time. It is heavier than the Planar 80mm but I think I can manage the weight and the front heavy nature of the lens when paired with the Hasselblad.
I got a chance to take senior photos of Shane using the 180mm. I think the photos turn out good. The focusing on a long focal length lens is always challenging to me but I ended up keeping about 80% of the shots. A vast improvement from last month using the 503cx.
And finally to cap off the night, a performance by Izza at the Dallas Myers Symphony Center. Congratulations to Jerry and Marcia! Izza’s performance was awesome and my family would definitely be back to see her again this Christmas for another performance.
