My New Years Lens Learning Challenge Begins
I decided to give myself a New Years’ challenge to get a usable shot every day with a lens I don’t often use. I have several lense’s in my arsenal, but always end up grabbing a macro, telephoto, or a wide-angle lens to fit my need. January will be my 50mm month, and before we take the Christmas Tree down, I thought I would grab some shots with the bokeh in the background to showcase the aperture of my Canon EF50mm f/1.4 USM a bit.
OK, so this one is a little different. There was one flower left in the vase that had not wilted away, and a bee figurine that came in a plant we bought once (one of the dead ones aforementioned) that has earned a spot on top of an end table for some reason. They were the closest things handy that were photogenic, so ya, I did a thing.
Last but not least before the tree comes down I thought a good use of the lens would be to get a shot of each of our Furbabies. Although they were all not very pleased about it, especially our old man Bear who is 14 and is lovably stubborn.
