This past weekend I acquired a used 5D body. It's well used, and therefore quite experienced. But with that, I only have two lenses to use, and both are primes: 50/1.4 and 85/1.8 . Wanting to quickly do a test "roll" I visited some familiar places with this unfamiliar equipment. Since I keep coming back to light being the basis of photography, these two shots have everything to do with light. Also my first attempt at using toning. Sometimes it's good to change things out. If you're not shooting a new subject, try making a change, or imposing a constraint on the equipment you're using.
