probably that's the reason she's not taking it off. thanks. now i understand.

All of this is true, but remember your the photographer, not the client. You have to get to a point where you know your skills are great, and that you can not just think of a concept but also execute it. (If that makes sense)

Does it mean we need to force the client to take off their eye glass in order to execute our creativity?

I also have one kid in my school yearbook gig who doesn't want to remove her eye glass. Told her the bad effect especially with my lightings but refused to agree with me so i have to take the shot.

Sure, nice sharp eyes are great with up close portraits. But having said this, I personally don't feel glasses take away from portraits ALL the time. Especially with your shots here Vin. These shots are more of a concept series. Glasses are very personal and can add character, especially with these shots. But, this is just me, I have always had a thing for the hot librarian look. ;)

Vin, take a look that this (you may have seen it before). It will help you light for people with glasses.

BTW, I think the hat a WAY worse than the glasses.

January 24, 2012 to be exact! I took a few shots at my daughter's school. This was one of them. I thought I had posted it here but couldn't find it...so here's a share from me! I have been VERY busy finishing my graduate program (17 days left, but who's counting?) and really haven't had any time to shoot, much less outside where I would be using the 135L. I look forward to blowing the dust off it and getting some use out of it this spring. I have never once thought of ditching it! :D

Thanks Cory for the feedback and the link.

I just ordered the 70-200 F2.8 non IS. I know the 135 is magical but if the 70-200 can yield a not so but similar effect, i might let this beast go.

Killing a very nice background is not good either(for me). It kills the purpose of finding a nice location. just my opinion.

Cory never once thought about sending his 135 to me for evaluation either :(

Hey Matt, that lizard shot is really good but he just doesn't look right without a cup-o-joe...;)

About the only time I like weeping cherry.

In bloom, and in photos.

Nasty to prune, but pretty to look at when there are flowers. The Bokeh sure came out awesome.

Thanks for your reply Cory. The reason i asked was that i've gone through both the 135L sample threads and it's funny how one lens, gets substituted for another - ie: in your case : ever since you brought the Sigma 35mm, there hasn't been a shot with the Canon 135mm.

I'm yet to buy the Canon - hanging for the rebates from Canon Australia.

Yes, I think it is just a combination of how busy I have been and the fact that I haven't done anything outside this winter. I think the 35/135 combo is going to be great this summer!
