About a month ago, I finally took the plunge and purchased a 50MM lens for my Canon DSLR. I'd been using the kit lens for four years and thought it was time I move ahead and learn how to use a fixed lens. One of my favorite things about the 50MM is the super low aperture! I'm so obsessed with it, that the 1.8 F-stop is all I want to use (because blurred backgrounds are my favorite!) However, Sam reminded me that I needed to practice using the full range of my new lens' capabilities, and this aperture challenge definitely forced me to do that!
F-Stop: 1.8 | Shutter Speed: 1/40 | ISO: 400
F-Stop: 5.6 | Shutter Speed: 1/4 | ISO: 400
F-Stop: 7.1 | Shutter Speed: 0.40 | ISO: 400
F-Stop: 11 | Shutter Speed: 1.0 | ISO: 400
F-Stop: 16 | Shutter Speed: 1.0 | ISO: 800
F-Stop: 20 | Shutter Speed: 0.8 | ISO: 1600
I'd love for you to join in on the photography fun! Head over to Elah Tree and see the challenge for this week. Hint: it has to do with the ISO. Do your homework, have fun, and link-up with everyone next week! :)
