Need a baby lens? You know what I recommend.
Shot with you know what. The cheap 50 remains an amazing portrait lens.
Not shot with my trust cheap Canon 50mm lens, but with another lo-fi sort of solution – my HTC Droid Incredible cameraphone. It’s got nothing on even the cheapest point & shoot, but I was too damn lazy to pull out my DSLR at this wonderful wedding.
Their happy moment was stolen with my cheap Canon 50mm 1.8 lens.
I shot this by pointing my camera at a window to capture the reflection of the Apple store interior on top of the view of the Old Homestead Steakhouse across the street, and then I flipped the image in Aperture so the letters on the iMac sign wouldn’t be backwards.

Okay this wasn’t shot with my beloved cheap-ass Canon 50mm lens – it was done on a plain-old Canon point and shoot.
That keeps with the theme of this blog – that cheap gear can get the job done.
This picture kind of gives me a headache though. Maybe I shouldn’t like it.
I found Michael Shulman performing an amazing cover version of Guns & Roses’ Sweet Child ‘O Mine in the Union Square subway station – complete with distortion and wah-wah on his electric violin. He also did a killer Billy Jean.
He’s not the first violinist I’ve caught at Union Square, but he may be my favorite.
Visit his website at BlackViolin.com.
Like everything else, this was shot with the cheap Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.
