Ok, two months since my last post is completely unacceptable. But, it's been a busy couple of months (aren't they all?) and the summer is in full stride here in Northeast Kansas. I've been doing a ton of shooting, but the majority has been around the house chasing kids. In fact, I'm fairly close to eclipsing 10,000 pictures on my new camera, which is a cool little milestone. I can only imagine how many images pro photographers take because I take a lot!
As much as I love shooting my children (they change so quickly!), I look forward to every opportunity to get outdoors to shoot the world around me. It's even more exciting to see the world through a new lens, which is just what I've been doing the last couple days. All praise be to Father's Day!
Nikon recently introduced it's newest 50mm lens, the AF-S Nikkor f/1.8G, but that's not the lens I got. I am the happy new owner of the 50mm AF Nikkor f/1.8D, which is about $100 less than the new lens. I jumped on the f/1.8D due to it's excellent price and outstanding optical performance. My assumption is that the f/1.8D will be phased out with the introduction of the new AF-S version, so I wanted to get one while they were still available.
I will be adding some more photos captured with this lens in the next couple of days. I went out this evening for about an hour and got several more photos that I'm very happy with and eager to share. This lens will definitely be getting a lot of playing time in the future!
To finish, here are some photos I've captured with other lenses that I recently posted to my photo website. Click on any picture and it will redirect you to the image on my photo website. I hope you enjoy them.
