A fews months back when we traveled down to Baltimore to shoot Jen & Brian’s wedding, we took the opportunity the night before to go to what is currently our FAVORITE restaurant, Roy’s. Roy’s is a Hawaiian Fusion restaurant that is a sheer delight from appetizer to dessert and everything in between. If you can remember from our post here, our only problem is that the Roy’s that was here in Philadelphia, closed this past summer, so the next closest one to us is in Baltimore. Being the opportunist that we are, we got in town early enough the night before to check into our hotel and then enjoy ourselves…..
Another thing to mention (for you photo nerds), was that for the wedding, we rented a Canon 85mm f1.2 lens that we read so much about. We played with it a little, wondering how and when we could fit it in to our business plan, since it commands a pretty hefty price tag. This lens is insanely sharp and the F1.2 part of it practically allows you to shoot in the dark with no flash…..so thats exactly what we did. We took our camera & the lens along with us to Roy’s, so each picture in this post was taken with it (except the obvious one below)
Look at how buttery smooth that background is…and what better way to start off our meal than with the famous Hawaiian martini.
This picture was taken with my phone just in case you didn’t believe us that the food is incredible.
Ok….so at the end of the night, the nice waitress offered to take a picture of us with our camera and lets just say she didn’t quite know how to get the camera to focus properly.
Here is a picture of the lens that we have been talking about, you can check it out here on Canon’s website or here on B&H’s website.
And here are 2 example’s from pictures we took the next day, of the awesome images that the Canon 85mm F1.2 is capable of producing. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next time you see us shooting around town, you see this lens on our camera.
