Good Saturday morning everyone! Hope this finds you well!
I’ve been playing around with my Nikkor 40mm f2.8 and was reading that with this particular lens, the best images are taken at least 6.4 inches away from your subject, and then on to portraits and landscapes.
But then I captured this … I think I was about 1 inch away from this poppy.
Perhaps it has to do with getting the best possible focus, and not taking into account artistic expression.
Lately I’ve been studying up on my camera and my lenses and its amazing how much more control I’ve gained over my photography. A quick push of a button and a turn of the command or sub-command dial and you can change ISO, exposure, metering, etc. You all probably know this, but I’m a slow learner, or at the very least, I’m slow to study up on my equipment.
Having said all this, I still end up deleting over half my images, mostly due to dreadful exposure or focus.
What’s one thing that you’ve learned, either about your camera or a lens that you’ve found helpful? What lens do you love the best? I’m dreaming about the Nikkor 18-300mm f 3.5 – 5.6 … dreaming, I said … .
