Lens Play


I’ve been using a 50mm prime lens since Uncle Don loaned me his D80 for my photography class earlier this year, and I’ve come to love the simplicity of it. Want to see something in more detail? Move closer. Need to see the whole thing? Back up.

Thinking I might enjoy exploring another type of lens (and having just received a new one for his birthday), Uncle Don kindly passed a 55—200mm zoom lens my way this past week. I popped it on for the first time this morning and headed out with a plan to shoot mostly on Auto.

I pointed it at things high up in the trees, at architectural details on rooftops, and down at the ground. Here’s a sampling of what I found.

    Great photos Martha! I have that lens too and it’s really nice for letting in light. Thanks for stopping over to our BBQ last weekend. It was so good to see you two and the cookies were a hit!

    I would say gorgeous. Keep trying out those lenses, Martha. Very intriguing shots. I like the focus.
