Last week I talked about my new lens. I haven’t had any time to really use it, but I’ve continued to take pictures around the house. I think we all do that when we get a new camera or lens, just take little test shots. But it’s been fun! And my pets usually don’t get this much photographic attention.
While playing with the lens I decided to pull out a lens I’ve had for a while put don’t use much. Some of the specs are pretty good – it’s 45 mm (90 mm 35 mm equivalent) f 1.8, so it’s fast. Given the 90 mm equivalent you can see its best use is as a portrait lens. It’s not a waterproof or very sturdy lens, so no taking it out in the kayak or hiking. It doesn’t do macros very well. But it’s great as a portrait lens! So i took a portrait or two with it. Pet portraits, that is.
Here are some mixed pictures from Saturday morning with the two lenses. (click photos for more detail).
