Love how we can see the muscles in the nose area or is that bone? I don't know but its got such a powerful sense of shape It feels like we are really up close and personal!

I think it's a bit of both, but it's mostly bone.
Haha yes. He has an incredibly powerful face. I certainly wouldn't want to get on his bad side!

Thanks Snow :)

Sometimes primes can be a pain, but at times like this I love them.

I've learnt to use my legs instead of a zoom. It works just as well :)

You still get the sharpness of the prime too! That is until one of the lenses falls out...
