Those B&W photos in color are really beautiful but there’s something so striking about a B&W photo… and so historically significant that the versions in color seem almost cartoony, you know?

I’ve actually been thinking very, very seriously about dumping my zoom kit (24-70/2.8 + 70-200/2.8) for a pair of fast primes (35/1.4 + either the 135/2 or the 100/2.8L macro). I already have a 50/1.4, so that gives me a good standard-length lens.

I like primes for the same reason Scott likes primes, but I really like primes because they’re *fast*. I find myself in a lot of situations where f/2.8 just doesn’t cut it, I don’t want to push the ISO past 3200 or whatever, and I can’t reasonably use a flash.

I think that I actually enjoy shooting more when I’m using my 50/1.4, so I don’t know. Losing the 70-200 isn’t a big deal to me (I don’t use it nearly as much as I thought I would), but I don’t know if I want to give up the 24-70. :-/

First world problems, eh?

How have I not yet seen “Hello”? Fantastic. I also loved the photographer’s blog post about struggling in the business right now. Great points, and brought a tear to my eye.

Thanks for sharing great stuff, as always.

the amount of people who think freelancing is for them when it’s really only for a few very disciplined people just cracks me up. OH I CAN DO THAT! Really? It’s just THAT easy? Not really…
