I had a blast today. I photographed my former assistant and good friend, Anne, here in the studio, in the early afternoon. She's terrific. She abandoned photography to go into nursing, got her master's degree and is now out to save the world. I photographed her with the Leica SL2 and that absolutely adorable Sigma 90mm f2.8 i-Series lens. Everything worked perfectly together.
After Anne left I found a package left by the front door. It was the lens I'd ordered a few days ago from B&H Photo. The TTArtisans 21mm f1.4 lens in an L mount configuration. I had a few hours before sunset so I put the lens on a favorite SL body, put on the wide, cool hood and drove downtown to see the holiday market at Republic Square. Live music, lots of food and a wide variety of vendors. A nice venue at which to test a new lens.
