A Wider Angle


After much research I got a new lens for our upcoming trip. I usually shoot with a 50mm f/1.8 prime on my Nikon D90 and rarely put a large lens on the camera. I wanted a lens to give me a bit wider angle and yet still be compact for long travel days. So I opted for the Nikon 24mm f/2.8 prime and took a few shots in the late afternoon today... with this first glimpse I am happy with it. For those not familiar with a prime - it's a fixed lens, no zoom, so you "zoom with your feet" to compose the shot. I'm so used to working this way now, and I think it helps the composition skills. So while it's not a super wide angle, it is wider indeed.

These are nice. I don't work well with tech equipment, although I used to take portraits. I think my instagram and blog keep me in touch with the sensibilities of what works and doesn't. I love that birdhouse shot!

Hello Tammy - I searched your blog but couldn't find the answer to my question, so I'm posting it here. To get your close-up shots, which lens to you use? I have a 50 mm but it won't take real tight shots, showing texture etc. Is the 24 mm one take those shots?

Carol - Just emailed you. I use a 50mm lens most often, and just crop.
