$2000 Lens: 85 mm f/1.2

Photography and editing: Thomas Roach (the handsome feller above)

Preview of more photos to come: My photog friend Thomas Roach rented this $2000 lens (85 mm f/1.2 prime) for much, much less than that. It was for a special event but we pranced around campus Thursday afternoon test-shooting each other and our other friend-photog, Vince. It had just stopped raining and there was a decent golden hour, and these photos made me want to pee my pants hot pink skirt. Shooting full-body outfit pics means backing away the length of a small schoolbus, so the benefit of having sexy bokeh may not be practical for personal style photography. Not sure camera remotes even sense that far - imagine running that distance every time you self-timer hahaha. 

Aren't these boys so sharply dressed too? Thomas and I practically live in our brown leather oxfords. Funny thing too, we're all science majors xD

I just took a long swim in nostalgic tears last night at the St. Louis Symphony Final Fantasy concert (Distant Worlds). Going again tonight and ready to see me some more Nobuo Uematsu, the composer himself! He's soooo shy and cute in person. In other news, this week JJ and I watched Kiki's Delivery Service and X-Men: First Class (sooo good!). Hunger Games movie this Sunday if I behave and get my study on. The beautiful 70-80 degree weather makes it impossible to focus anyway ... oh, and second semester senioritis. Have an exciting weekend!

Readers - do you like the ultra-blurry background or prefer more detail?

You are one stylish lady, love your boots, they add the perfect amount of edgyness to your outfit. oh i know what you mean about self-timer and the fab sunny weather that won't let us study.
i watched the hunger games yesterday and i say find some time and watch it. it was almost as great as the book itself, since they didn't change much. and even my best friend who never read the book and didn't really care about the movie loved it and sat on the edge of her seat all time long.
plus Peeta and Gale aka Josh and Liam are super cute. i mean this is a plus for me, i love me some Josh Hutcherson.

ooh beautiful lens! I do like super blurry backgrounds myself but then again, in certain situations it would be a shame to sacrifice detail as well. These photos did turn out very lovely! :) loving those lace-up black boots! <3
