Picked up the Nikkor 35mm f1.8 to have a nice walk around lens for the Nikon D750. At the moment I’m not ready to drop the loads on the higher end f1.4 line that Nikon has available. This lens is totally capable of getting the job done for a budget price. more “Nikkor 35mm f1.8 Lens Unboxing”

I’ve been bringing out the XT-2 pretty consistently since I got it. This day was no different, the 56mm Fujinon was the only lens I used for this day out with Lauren. The focal length took some getting used to. I initially shot at 135mm for a majority of the time last year. While I do enjoy the compression from such a long lens, it’s nice to work in areas that have limited space, something the 135mm lens wouldn’t do easily. This area didn’t have much room to step back so it worked out very well.
Met up with Kitten on a beach without really thinking of what the area would have for lighting at night. It turned out to be pitch black and pretty damn creepy. Luckily we didn’t run into anything and I had my flash. In really dark spots like this, it helps to have a flash light so your camera can focus a lot easier. Using an off camera speedlite is still a bit foreign to me if the light is heading straight for the subject. It took a while to find a groove with the flash and where to set it, I’m really trying to focus on speeding up how long this adjustment period takes. Due to the sketchy feels and pitch black scenes, I liked the hard shadows coming across everything.
Caught up in the moment of taking some cool photos in a new spot, I forgot to put sunblock on. more “Suns out Buns out”
I managed to get a small gig shooting some products for a local skate brand. All Day I Dream About Pizza had a few shirts and pins to display. This was the first time I got to shoot products for someone and the general theme kind of lined up with how I normally shoot anyway. more “All Day I Dream About Pizza”
