It was an overcast day and somewhat warm out, so I decided to grab my Nikon D750 and 35mm lens and venture over to Hillcrest Park. Admittedly, it's hard sometimes to find new things to photograph, especially when I tend to walk in the same areas. So, what I try to do, is go down a different back alley, or walk from a different direction. Often times, just looking behind you or walking the opposite direction can give you a completely fresh perspective.
I always like to get in really close to my subjects and focus on the colours an the detail. The 35mm 1.8, has really good minimum focusing distance, and when you are in really close, the bokeh is actually pretty good. Along with getting in close, I'm always considering the overall composition when I shoot. I tend to have at least one focal point, even if it's not readily apparent. My extensive background in graphic design has allowed me to develop this skill.
Thanks for viewing!
