New lenses mean one thing: need more opportunities to go shooting. Okay, maybe it means a few more things than that. Actually, in this case, it does. New lenses were acquired by selling other ones. So that means now, I don’t have any more autofocus and/or zoom lenses. Kind of funny, with all of this technological advancement, I feel like the best equipment for me still ends up being the ones with the least bells and whistles.
One of my new lenses is a 28mm prime. I’m in love with it already. I brought it to a birthday party last weekend, and it was perfect for the setting. Wide angle on full frame, close focusing. Aperture opens only to f/2 though…wish it were faster. Nikon seriously needs to get their butt into gear and release a 24 or 28/1.4.
A few from the party:
Since the wifey is out of town these few days, I also dropped by Hermann Park for a little photo walk. I’ve been to Hermann many times now, and honestly…I’m kind of uninspired. (One of my friends mentioned that I sounded almost a little bitter in a previous post because I complained about how there’s nothing interesting to shoot in Houston…heh, I don’t intentionally do it! But maybe it’s something subconscious ). But, like the assignment I mentioned before, sometimes we need to force ourselves in a “normal” looking setting and use your creativity to make something interesting out of it. (That’s why I love taking pictures of babies – nothing ever normal! They’re always adorable!) So, here are a few of my attempts at making something look more interesting…
