I just acquired a Canon85mm f 1.2. I had no flash for my 1DMk2, so I had to do with the available ceiling tungsten lights. Following is one of those shots, but I could have chosen from 20 or 30 equally pleasing photos. All were taken at f1.2, hand-held at ISO 800. Here's Macie, my only grandaughter, who just had her first birthday, and is soon going to have her first Christmas.

Whew! Shows what f/1.2 can do... it's very flattering lighting (considering what you were working with!) resulting in a great finished image. Nice shot!

Ward...great to see you post once again

You always bring magic to this forum.

You truly are a "rich" man.

I imagine your child and his/her spouse greatly appreciate your talents!

Very cool photo!

That is a little girl who loves to be photographed!! I love the looks on her face throughout the series of shots, too. What a fun time...what a priceless gift you have captured!! The shallow depth of field gives it that magical feel. The anticipation hangs in the air!

Thanks for sharing!
