The cool thing about living in LA

Hey everyone,

as you might know, LA is the world's biggest movie city. Movie city means a lot of young aspiring actors, dancers and models leave in the area and everybody is looking for a perfect headshot to be spotted.

While I am not generally considering myself as a portrait photographer, I do these kinds of things a lot more recently, especially when shooting for the Cabaret.

So when Tricia, a friend of mine asked if I could do her headshot I was thrilled.

Luckily, literally the day of the photoshoot, I received my new favorite lens in the mail. I just bought a Canon FD 55mm f1.2 on ebay. And with a little adapter I can put it on my Sony NEX-6 camera. I can tell you I am already in love with this lens. I'll do a more in-depth review later but my initial impressions are great.

Here are the shots I got from it that day. Of course having a beautiful model like Tricia helps a lot to get gorgeous shots like this ;)
