This post was suppose to go live on Friday, on the last Friday of the month as a part of my Photography series. Sometimes things are not going to a right direction and plans get changed. So today is Sunday, and I usually do not post on Sundays, but I really wanted to share this photography post with you all. If you missed any of the recent photography posts, be sure to check them out below:
Some readers were asking what camera I use, so I am going to tell you today
My first DSLR camera kit was bought about 5 years ago. I got myself a NIKON 5100 kit. In the kit I got the camera body and two lenses.
It was a great kit to start off with and I really enjoyed learning photography with it. Couple years later someone talked me into getting a prime lens.
That’s when my photography jumped from taking good pictures to taking AMAZING pictures.
Have you heard of Prime Lenses yet?
They are amazing and worth every penny!
Since I got my very first prime lens, I only use prime lenses.
The lenses that I got with my KIT are covered with dust on my shelf. No kidding! I don’t think I used them ever since I purchased my first prime lens.
My prime lenses currently are:
The Nikkor 35mm was my first prime lens and It was somewhere in the $200 range. I have to tell you, that it’s a very reasonable price for this lens
I am loving it!
Few things I love about prime lenses:
– they are much lighter than zoom lenses
– you can achieve a beautiful Bokeh with them
– they are amazing in low light situations
Disadvantages of prime lenses?
– really nothing…the only thing is that you have to get use to walking towards your objects because you can not zoom with these lenses
Just a few images that were taken with a prime lens:
…and of course all the others:-)…
I love creating the softness in the background with using shallow dept of field on my images.
Last year, I invested in to a Nikon D600 camera, which is a full frame camera and great for my photography business.
(update* they don’t make D600 anymore..I am using now Nikon D610)
Well, these are the items in my camera bag.
I LOVE these lenses and I am really encouraging you to get your prime lens if it fits in your budget!
Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!
