      thanks Simon! @abasfly, it might be true but I am more concerned whats in front of my lens than abstract tech data. I would have shot it with the 1.4 or even 1.8 if the focusing ring wouldn't be so crappy, practically useless for a clean focus pull, my real reason for using the 1.2 isn't 1.2 but the focusing ring and the a large turning radius. why not the zeiss 1.4 you will probalby ask, I love the zeiss, great bokeh, small and the best feel for focusing, but no af. if you have to shoot 3000 or 4000 pictures in a day, not sure about you, but i want af. For now I find the 1.2 the best combo lens, for video and photo shoots.

        I still shoot some fashion myself, so I appreciate having your styling and look together. Nice job, really. Everything looks great.
        However, I have found for myself, the biggest difficulty going beyond a perfume ad aesthetic, is taking the next step into something that has a story.
        Fashion films are hopefully moving in this direction. I know you were on an editorial stills assignment, but would love to see what you could do, taking it a little further.
        Nice job, in any case.

            thank you, yoclay. yes, def the goal to get there at some point, itching to do something more story based, I think it is very difficult at this point - the models aren't ready yet, the time it would take is too much for them. I shot the editorial and the video clip in one afternoon, about 31/2 hours. This includes styling, make up and hair changes. I notice a big difference when shooting a model with acting ambitions vs just a model. I guess wait and see and jump at the opportunity once it arises.

                Wait till you work with an actor/actress who just has acting ambitions and training. You won't want to work with anything else again.
                edit:
                screen training i meant, not theatre
