[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Got my hands on the Canon EF 1.2mm L USM lens for a while. Not something that fits my budget at all.
Spent a lot of time performing tests, trying to master that super shallow depth of field. The lens have a few problems, sometimes it casts a kind of orange tint on half the image, like a graduated filter, also it strugles to focus in dim light, and the focus is always soft wide open. But still it makes such a dreamy bokeh that I wish I could have it always with me.

My dog Dexter was feeling left out, because I was spending more time with a machine than with him. This turned out to be only photo worth sharing with you all. Hope you enjoy it and fell empathy with him.

On PP: Lightroom - nothing much, just contrast enhancement, color mixing to desaturate red and yellow, iris enhancement too.

Hello Lauro

I have the canon 1.4 50mm which has great sharpness and still achieves great DOF at a fraction of the price. On your t5 this lens would make a great portrait lens due to the sensor size. Nice capture of the eyes on the dog


Awesome portrait of this dog! Good lighting and sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Bom dia Lauro,
Andamos os dois experimentando lentes...(*_*)
Permita lhe dizer que os seus resultados já são muito bons, como esse olhar líquido do cão (pena que você não tenha feito desaparecer os reflexos indesejaveis).
Gosto muito desse retrato.
Um grande abraço.

Hi Lauro..nicely composed shot with artistic depth of field. Nice work.


Another cute and impatient expression well captured what a lovely details and portrait well done LAURO BENVINDA
