The Bazooka Lens

When we went on our shoots, I had the opportunity to shoot with Mike Colón’s Nikon 200mm f/2G ED-IF AF-S VR Nikkor. It is no wonder why it is his favorite lense! Though, not the most compact lense, this thing is a MUST HAVE for serious shootin! It is by far the sharpest piece of glass I have ever used. I was shooting it wide open at f/2.0. I couldn’t get over how tack sharp it is. The thing weighs 6.5lbs! You can only use it sparingly on a wedding day, but I cannot wait to get one and take this lense only on an engagement shoot. It will be well worth it!!

Here are a few pics of me using the bazooka (Thanks for giving me the first try for free Mike! hahaha Nikon Loves when you have these workshops!)

This is one of Brittany Gebler, one of our beautiful models. Brittany is also a photographer attending Brook’s Institute. Brittany helped us out sooo much during the week. She modeled at the beach, on the streets of Laguna and even jumped in the pool with her dress on! It was a blast. Thanks Brittany!! We started shooting her next to this Ferrari and the owner walked over and said, ‘Would you like to get in?’ This car was insane! Don’t you love how she just Pops out of the image? The background goes milky… I love that! I shot this with the 200, 2.0 @ 1600/sec.

  34. In the journey of life, I am touched every time the coming of a fate, a short greeting message, a kind message conversation, all moved me, the beauty of the fate, the warmth of friendship! Pong you a gentle blessing! I only wish good friends happy every minute! Health, good luck and happiness!

  35. If there is a friend in the horizon, the heart will fly; if there is hope in the heart, laughter will be refreshing; if there is a fate in life, dreams will last; if there is always a greeting, friendship will set sail.

  36. The fragrance of flowers overflows with the change of seasons, the colorful clouds show that the summer is far away, the bright of the moon invites the lingering of golden autumn, the greetings of the heart spread the thoughts of friendship, the beautiful wish of prayer is happy forever, dear friend, wish you every day happy!

  37. The road is long and steep. Maybe you are tired. You want to give up.If you want to reach the peak of the road smoothly, you can only hold back the tired feet, relax the complex thoughts in your heart, and keep going forward step by step. Believe a word: do not give up, only succeed.

  38. We have left footprints under the shade of the trees, we are happy in the cafeteria, the figure in the study room is still clear, and the library is filled with our breath. After graduation, memories are still lingering in my mind, and I look forward to his reunion in the years to come.

  41. When the love is strong, eachother is in the sea; when the love is weak, it is the same. Love cannot fade when it is strong, but it is difficult to thick when it is weak. Love is difficult to face, that is why it is embarrassing!

  42. You insist on what you think is good. This good is not yet recognized as good. If you think it is good, you insist. I think this is the essence of idealism.

  43. Be a man, be sure to know the gratitude! Don’t forget the benefactors who have helped you, and don’t hurt the nobles who often guide you, otherwise your friends will become fewer and fewer and your life will be more difficult.

  44. Meeting is a matter of two people, but separation is a decision of one person; meeting is a beginning, but separation is to meet the next separation. This is a world of prevalence, but we are not good at saying goodbye.

  45. I want to be with you, even if it is a headless and tailless farce, I will persist until the moment the world fades after you leave the stage, hold a small lamp and stand in the memory waiting for you.

  46. Time will always give you the answer, who is the one who really hurts you and who really cares about you; who is who you care about but who cares nothing about you. Some people are not worth cherishing too much, while others are worth cherishing
