***We rented an 85mm 1.8 prime for the cowgirl shoot with Celine. When a lens gives you clarity like this in the eyes, why keep renting it? We bought it.
[edit by david: I'd been eyeing 85mm/1.8 lenses on Craig's List for a while but had not committed to buy. We'd rented a Sigma 85mm/1.4 from the local camera store because the Nikon lens they normally had was out. We went to rent that one again, but it was a one time deal and they no longer had it in the rental stock, so we took the Nikon 85/1.8. We went around shooting Celine in various places around town. Jacci liked it, so when a lens popped up on Craig's List last week, I jumped on it and bought it for her.
I bought the hat at Goodwill. There was no price on it, so when I asked at the checkout how much it was, I was told it was $15. I told the clerk that I didn't want it that badly, but just before she finished ringing me up, I told her to just add it. When I got home, I found out that she'd rung it up at a reduced $3.99. I'm glad I took it because it's a real cowboy hat.]
