The Cream Machine no-people thread

  1. The 85mm f/1.4 - aka the Cream Machine for the way it renders OOF backgrounds

    Everyone knows the 85/1.4 is a great portrait lens, but it can do other stuff, too. Cream machine renderings of anything but people are requested.

    Not known as a 'walk-around' lens for non-humans, but if you force yourself to make the most of what's at hand, you might be surprised by the results. Love this lens.
