As photographers we all get acustomed to using certain lenses that we deem as our ‘favorite go to’. Mine is the 24-70 2.8. This is a great lens and has a really great zoom range for wide angle to portrait. But lately I have been falling in love all over again with one of the first lenses I ever bought……my 50mm 1.8. This lens is just awesome and takes super sharp pics even at a wide open aperture at 1.8. Shooting at an aperture this large is what gives the really blurry backgrounds that we all love in portraits. On top of that, the lens (due to its large aperture) lets you shoot in low light situations without using a flash. Here are a few shots I took oner the weekend of Ayden and Kai with the 50. My next big purchase is definitely going to be one of Nikons classic portrait lenses…the 85mm 1.4. Check back soon because I will soon be posting some of my most recent shoots, including a wedding. Have a great week everyone.
