My Favorite Lens | KC Photographer

For those of you wondering what gear I like to use on my sessions, I thought I would just post about my favorite piece of equipment. I started out my photo business on the Canon 50mm 1.8 which is a fabulous lens for the price! I absolutely love the images I was able to capture with that lens. Last year, I decided to upgrade and get the Canon 50mm 1.2 and I am in love with it!

Having a 1.2 allows me to shoot wide open and capture so much more light even when there is not much light to work with. In the below image, I took my little sister out to take her senior pictures but we didn't have much light to work with at all! However, shooting at a 1.2, I was able to capture some beautiful glimmers of sun as it was setting behind her.

Another thing I love about the 50mm 1.2 is the bokeh (blurry background) that it creates. I once heard another photographer say, "The images are like butter" and I couldn't agree more. :) I hope you enjoyed reading about my favorite lens!

All The Best,
