Shopping Mall Christmas Decoration

I like Christmas decoration. Now with the 50mm f/1.8g lens, that is even more interesting. I can take pictures of Christmas lights with bokeh, I find that very beautiful. I assume I will do this quite often in the future until I maybe get bored with the bokeh. But for now this is really interesting as I couldn’t do this well with my other lenses. Together with my mother, I was shopping in a mall today, and there was all kind of Christmas decoration. That was a great place to play with my lens.

Photo Shooting, Shopping And Tasty Bockwürstchen

I met my mother today because we wanted to go shopping together in a big shopping center. I shot some very cool portraits of my mother on the way to the malls, and even inside the shopping center because Christmas trees or any Christmas lights make a nice bokeh portrait background. We definitely had fun, although my mother is a bit shy because strangers were curious and looked, but I told her “You will get used to it”. As a German, I can tell you, taking photos or posing for a portrait is definitely not normal in Germany. For the … Continue reading Photo Shooting, Shopping And Tasty Bockwürstchen

Testing The 50mm Lens With My Cat

It’s raining outside and that means I don’t want to test my new 50mm lens outside yet. But I tested this lens already inside, especially at f/1.8 to get a nice blurry background or shallow depth of field. The problem is however that depth of field can become too shallow sometimes. Well, this is actually not a problem, it’s rather one of the reasons why I wanted to get this 50mm lens. What I meant is, that I do now have to get used to different aperture settings, or to be more exact to control this and to learn when … Continue reading Testing The 50mm Lens With My Cat

Santa Claus Came Too Early And Brought Me A Nikon 50mm 1.8G

Yeah, Santa Claus came a bit too early this year. No, let me be serious now, I actually made a present to myself. As I mentioned in this post, I tried to get a used Nikon 50mm 1.8G lens for 120€. Yes, this mission is complete, the post was written three weeks ago, that means it took me three weeks to find the lens and to convince sellers to let me purchase it for this price. Now that I followed the lens for several weeks, I can tell you that the average German market price (used) for the lens is … Continue reading Santa Claus Came Too Early And Brought Me A Nikon 50mm 1.8G

There Is A 50mm Prime Lens On My Radar

I have chosen a photo for this post that I shot at 50mm with my Nikon 18-105mm kit lens. Taking a look into my Lightroom library, it’s clear I didn’t take a lot of photos at 50mm. This is no surprise due to the fact that I did spend most of my time in a village this year where it was quite easy to find beautiful birds, that’s why I purchased a 70-300mm lens at the beginning of this year. I’ve not been completely happy with the image quality of my tele lens, but still it amazed me to have … Continue reading There Is A 50mm Prime Lens On My Radar
