happy new year!
okay, so i'm not much of a new year's person, to be honest. BUT, i do love good times with good friends, and i happen to have a bunch of gorgeous, unbelievably photogenic friends who are really good sports with me and my camera... so i took my equipment over to my friend humera's house tonight to get some portraits of the people i love. my plan was to practice doing some off-camera lighting... but i've only succeeded in realizing even more how much i have to learn about it, so there's only, like, one shot in here with flash. otherwise... i mean, i was shooting with a canon 35mm 1.4L wide open on a 5D at ISO 1000... why even bother with the flash?? have i mentioned before how much i love this lens?!humera, jawad, aatif, rubina, shaf, imran, and my growing family hassan, rabiah, issa baba and baby imani - thanks so much for a wonderful evening!
