  1. Check out the Lightroom Presets I used to edit the photos in this video 🙂

  2. I’m just started to watch your Chanel and she look pretty good ! I really like how you explain, you show and you share your vision of the photography !!!!!

  3. Also, why did you not use a hood? Lastly – if you got water inside the 50 f1.4, was the lens then ruined?

  4. You have had to shoot in the pouring rain during a wedding? wow. I write into my contracts that I will not take my gear out into inclement weather because I see no point in shooting a wedding for $XXXX and ruining $XXXX worth of gear. (also: Weather resistance is not weather proof – that would require a housing.) So, while I agree that weather resistant O-ring seals are nice – I, personally, would not sacrifice my gear for a shoot that would negate any income from that shoot. There's no reason to shoot in the rain without protective covering on the gear, which is easy to purchase and fit to the gear. I guess also, one has to consider: does a photo subject want to get rain-soaked?

  5. How do you focus so good trough the viewfinder? Often when I try to focus on a spot of a model it looks sharp in the view finder but blurry when I take the photo?

  6. I really love your commentaries, please keep them coming. I think your channel is the go to. I have the 6d mark ii and the 50mm 1.4 and I am debating between upgrading to the 1.2 or goi g for the 35 1.4 usm ii next.

  7. I got the 50mm 1.4 when I was on a crop body, and it made for an excellent portrait lens at like an 85mm equivalent. Looking back, I don't know if it was really worth the upgrade over the 1.8 because then I could have got the 24mm pancake too. Now, I'm fullframe, and see the 50mm 1.4 as a nice option when I need the extra stops of light, but otherwise think my go-to is the 70-200mm f/4. Investing a ton of money in a regular prime doesn't make a ton of sense to me – maybe it does for her style of fashion photography, but I'd probably rather have the 24-70 f/2.8 as a budding pro or even hobbyist as it gives you a really useful focal range, adequate light for most situations, and you can get that pro build quality at used prices.

  8. To get a sharp image with the 50. 1.4 you don't shoot wide open. The ideal aperture for the 1.4 is around 2.8 or 5.6. Bokeh is okay on it but if that's not what you're going for don't shoot wide open at 1.4. You'll notice image sharpness change when you change the aperture. Wide-open the slightest movement will throw the shot out of focus. So select single point shooting for autofocus. I had to learn this lens because it was my first introductory lens. My shoots were awful and not in focus. What helped was practice. Learn what you have before investing in more equipment.

  9. Hi friend, I hope you well. It been a while. I am using a 5D mark 4 . I have noticed the 50mm 1.4 is very wide on the 5D mark 4 but if you using 6D with the same lens you get exactly 50mm range.

    The difference though is not that much but it kind of a pain to get use to

    Do you have any idea what is the cause for this ?

  10. Thanks Julia. I was wondering if the 1.2 is worth the extra money. You’re right about the 1.4. I had trouble with all 2 of my 1.4s auto focus and just had to return em.

  11. Hello Julia. It seems to me that some other factor (I do not know if the rain) influenced so that the contrast for example, of 50 mm 1.4, was so unfavorable in relation to the 1.2 series L. This I tell you, because the Spanish youtuber Marcos Alberca uses as his Header lens 50 mm 1.8 (a lens of much lower price than 50 mm f1.4) and nevertheless gets very sharp results. I would like you to be able to perform some other extra test to clarify whether the performance of a lens of smaller range, such as 1.4, in relation to the 1.2 series L, is so atrociously poor, because it is really not to be believed, I particularly have I used that 50 mm 1.4 lens a lot (now I have replaced it with the 18-35 mm sigma) and it always gave me great results. Thank you and I hope your answer. @ jjesús__az, Mexico.

  12. You look as if you have a UV filter on your lenses? Are they a permanent fixture on all your lenses?

  13. I totally agree with your comparison. That's exactly what I felt.
    I don't know it's because of weather proof, but EF 50mm f1.2 has richer, deeper and smoother color & contrast.
    It has really unique color & contrast, mood and expression regardless of the latest lenses.
