Newcastle Photos – 5 September 2007

Yet another lunchtime walk is documented in this album. For this one, I went out with the 50mm f/1.8 lens. It’s a lovely lens, especially when the remarkably low price (as such things go) is taken into consideration. Some of these pictures are exercises in playing with the depth of field, some are more general pictures, and most show how I have to think differently about how to take pictures when using a prime lens. Most of the time, I use a zoom lens of some kind, which gives me greater flexibility in composing pictures. With a prime lens, if I want a different composition, I have to move myself rather than adjust the lens. It can be more challenging, which is a good thing really…

My “catch up with the backlog” project is coming along nicely – I have one more set from September, then it’s on to the much larger selection of images from September[1]. At this rate, I might actually catch up by the end of the week, unless the weather improves and I go out and take a few hundred more pictures…
