What’s My Favorite Lens? | Houston Newborn Photographer

Every photographer has their favorite lens, one that they use in every session, one that they just can’t live without. Eight years ago when I owned my first DSLR, I fell in love with my 50mm f/1.4. I loved its depth of focus and the artistic feel of images it produced.

Since I’ve upgraded to a full-frame camera (Canon 5D Mark III), I only use Canon’s series of L lens (Canon Luxury Lens). Now my new love is Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens. It is made of very sturdy materials, yet not too heavy for female photographers. It’s super fast and produces crispy clear images. Most importantly, I love that my images have soft and creamy out-of-focus areas.

I use my 50mm f/1.2L all the time durging my newborn sessions and am so satisfied with the compelling newborn portraits it produces.

I also love to bring this lens to my outdoor sessions. It creates yummy background bokeh (those cute circular light) and is ideal for isolating my subjects at large apertures.

If you would like to invest in just one lens, I would highly recommend a 50mm prime lens.
