I have been so busy yesterday that I only got a few photos.  This is a travesty for a weekend.  Especially for such a beautiful day.  Maybe tomorrow will bring better luck.

I am thinking of getting a couple of lenses soon.  I was thinking of a 50mm 1.4 or so and a some type of zoom lens larger than 200mm.  Does any one have a suggestion and why you like them?

Today’s Photo:  An Experiment in Light

This was an experiment in light from several years ago.  The bad part is, I was not able to recreate it.  I tried several times and made some very cool other stuff, but not this same effect.  It is amazing how different light affects the photo during low light photography.  I set the camera on a timed exposure, I think it was 30 seconds and walked with a speed light across the field of view.  Every few steps, I would fire the speed light manually.  I love to paint with light whenever I have time.  I know I am not the only person.

    Hey Daryl– I have the Nikon 50mm 1.4. I like it; it’s super fast great for close ups/portraits. Some friends have the 60mm and really like it as well. That’s a macro lens and has a really close focus point. These lenses cost about the same (the 60 is a little more expensive). I am renting a 12-24 for a trip to Maine… will see how it goes. Nice site/fotos. Thanks!

    • Thank you Robert. I am just using the 18-105 kit lens that came with my Nikon D90. I have been very surprised with the quality of the kit lens. The only problem I have had is a little vignetting at 18mm, but that is easily fixed. Have fun in Maine. Right now I am wishing I could be anywhere other than the hot south.
