  1. Обалденные фотки! Как тебе они удаются? Неужели все дело в линзе?

  2. Эти фотки сделаны Canon 400D + Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 USM (d 7,1, если тебя интересуют чисто технические подробности). Стекло в приницпе неплохое, но не шедевральное. Мне, ещё когда-то давно натершему мозоль о фиксы, им очень удобно снимать, плюс оно быстрое и светосильное. Но это не шикарные фотки – это так. Вот шикарные фото моих коктейлей (тут стекло действительно… тут хассель!)

  3. Сподобился наконец-то смешать Катеньку – глянулась она составом.
    Люблю коктейли на водке – они просты, чисты и лаконичны.
    Отлично получилось, жаль Финляндия на этом закончилась…
