This is one busy Toad today, folks! I am sorry if I am sparsely available today, I’ve got some priority work to deal with and may be sporadic with our involvement online. We purchased a new 50mm prime lens earlier this week to accommodate some upcoming commission shoots we are anticipating. I’ve been working with this new lens to try to revise my work-flow to deal with the differences in dealing with a prime lens. I thought today’s post could showcase a few shots taken with this new lens as well as be an anecdote for my day.
That is to say, this Toad Is Up A Tree today.
Without any further ado, let’s take a peek at a few images.
These trees were all shot with our new Prime 50mm lens. All pictures were taken at Victoria’s iconic Beacon Hill Park on Vancouver Island. I have ultimately fallen in love with this lens and hope to use it as much as possible; the resultant images are clear and sharp beyond belief. I will be posting a few images of some close-up work I did with it later, the ability to control the DOF with this lens is simply incredible. But, it’s a versatile piece of glass to have in your camera bag, it can obviously be used to take pictures of landscapes as well as close-ups and portraits.
I’d like to take this chance to give a special shout-out to my good good friend, Jim Denham, who mentored and guided me with his experience and insight. It was through his guidance that we decided to go ahead and get this lens to add to our photographic toolkit. Thanks Jim, we sure do appreciate you my friend!
I am so sorry that I have to post and hop here, folks; I hope to meet up with everyone online today but as mentioned this maybe sporadic at best. I hope you all understand. Please do feel free to leave a comment, we really love to hear from our visitors!!!
