my first photos…
Some of you will know I’ve not been happy with my 18mm-50mm lens that came with my camera, I felt limited with it…I’ve thought about this for a few months as I wasn’t sure what I wanted or even if I needed a new lens. This one was suggested as a starting point, something I could build from…it is a Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8D, it wasn’t expensive, but I’ve read many positive reviews, it also comes highly recommended by a blogging friend…it is supposed to be a great lens in spite of the cost. I’ve only taken a few shots with it so I’m not sure what I’m doing with it yet…time will tell!
I was about 10 feet away from this mom and her chicks, she didn’t seem to be afraid of me,but she didn’t want me too close…as I inched closer she kept walking away, with one eye on me at all times…
I like the texture on tree trunks, when I saw this one with the mushrooms growing I decided to see how much detail I could pick up…
So cute. 🙂

The 50 is a great lens, and you made the right choice. The f/1.4 only adds the 1.4 aperture, which is almost unusable except for macros.

happy to hear another positive regarding the lens…someone else said the same thing about the f/1.4…it is all good!

I have the f/1.4. It’s great, but I NEVER use 1.4. The focal length is less than an inch … tip of the nose type distance.

That is a good choice, Heather because waiting for another new better lens release will be too long ! 🙂 Great shots!

great idea…this mother wasn’t afraid, although she did keep me from walking right up by slowly moving away if I took a step towards, was enjoyable to watch!
