Tech Porn: My New 50MM

My best friend came home last week after nearly two years abroad becoming a master in business. He brought me a new toy… A Nikon 50MM f/1.8D. It’s fully manual which means I have to start exercising the “professional” in professional photographer. These are a few test shots with it…

One of the best things about this lens is that it makes everything look so much more dramatic. Yes, I took this photo through Lightroom but the work on it was a lot more minimal than you may think.

The goat is going to die soon, so don’t get attached… It’s a meal, not a pet.

No, seriously, don’t let his “woiye” face fool you…. He’s food!

Enough about the goat, now you get to look at my foot…. Awesome…. Innit!? And I don’t even get pedicures…

Then there is this flower… Just being all flowery in the sun… But what I want you to see is the Bokeh on the lens… Brilliant. You can barely tell that there are other flowers just like this one in the background, this flower ends up being the most important flower in the picture… The focal point.

DSC_2847Look at this picture… It looks cool.

DSC_2848Now look at this picture… BokehTASTIC!!!!

Now, for the final pictures I want you to first wrap your head around this music video…

Now look at these… Apparently you can get a special illustrated book based on the song as a gift… What DOES the fox say?
