It was one of those days that I just didn't want to sit behind my computer and stare at a screen, so I figured I would get and enjoy some of the nice weather, and take some photos in the process. This time around, I took my Nikon D750 paired with the 35mm 1.8. I always go on about the tones and colours that come out of my Fuji cameras, but the Nikon is right there as well, and if anything, the colours are just as good. For the longest time I would always just carry around the 50mm lens but I think the 35mm on the Nikon is my new favourite. It's a nice balance and it has amazing close focusing abilities. I'm able to blur out the background easily and the bokeh produced is actually quite pleasing.
So, now that I chose my camera and lens I had to decide where to go. I almost convinced myself to head over to East End but I decided to just stick in the area and wander the back lanes and roads. As I have mentioned in many previous posts, I am always on the lookout for old and worn in objects. For some reason, when I walk around, I am drawn that subject matter. I am so used to photographing beautiful things, like weddings and portraits, that I need to balance that out. :)
I mainly stuck to a 10 block radius and just wandered around aimlessly. If I so something in the distance, I just walked towards it, and that led me into a different direction. I always make sure to look for different angles, or things to shoot through too. Whether it's textures, colours or just over all composition, I'm always trying to 'create' a photo each time I press the shutter.
Thanks again for viewing!
