A New Lens

Hello all!

So, I am very excited to introduce a few new things to the blog!

To kick things off, I just purchased my first lens (apart from my kit lens)!!

It’s a Nikkor AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8g.

This is a test picture I took with the lens, of its packaging.

What excited me the most, is that the bokeh and sharpness of this lens is amazing!

Seriously, this is an awesome lens.

Judging by how well the few test shots I have done it, it might just replace my kit lens as the default lens I leave on my camera.


So, to continue on with this, I am going to add a new segment to the blog…Reviews!!

I have quite a bit of equipment and things that I’m sure would be so helpful to novice photographers such as myself.

So, tomorrow is going to be the first review, which is of the lens above.

I’ll also be adding a “Reviews” tab to the menu bar at the top of the home page for quick access for all those who are interested.

I’m hoping that this blog will be a great and valuable resource for other photographers, beginners or experts.

Requests are very much welcomed if you want me to review a piece of equipment or even a technique!

I hope all of you are going to love this as much as I will!

    I can’t wait to see the photos in the coming weeks. I think this is a good night for me to click on photography blogs. I also use Nikkor lenses. I do not have this one though, maybe one day.

      Thank you so much! Well, I shopped around quite a bit, and read great things about this lens’ capability in low light conditions, portrait photography and bokeh!

    As the saying goes, “invest in glass”. Enjoy the new lens.
