My daughter has helped understand the source of those luminous still life photos one sees in magazines and some blogs: a portrait lens. I couldn't resist - I bought one. The play of light on texture and color is irresistible to me. It draws me in an unspeakable way, as if I were a helpless moth.
One of my favorite coffee mugs. I've not quite gotten the hang of this lense yet; please bear with me. I will be posting lots of photos as I go along.
My son made this dish in pottery class in high school.
What is your favorite lens?
