Braving the Winter with the Nikon DF

As I mentioned in me previous post, I recently purchased a Nikon DF. It’s been a long time coming and I’m so excite to finally own one. In the past week I have used it extensively, just for personal and fun photography. I am anxious to use it only paid sessions along side my D750 ( which is getting repaired at the moment). Until then, I’m going to continue to shoot as much as I can.

Where I live, Thunder Bay, is extremely cold nowadays, so it is hard to get out as much as I would like to, but that hasn’t stopped me. On my lunch breaks, I get out for about 40 minutes in and around the local university. As much as I would love to do some street photography with people, there just isn’t enough opportunity to do so.

So, I settle with my usual still life and landscape photography which I love doing. I shoot primes about 95% of the time. I very much enjoy taking advantage of the large apertures of primes. My 35mm 1.8 has been living on my DF almost the entire time. I love to field of view of the 35 and also the close focusing abilities. I truly believe it’s the most versatile and fun lens I own.

The good thing about winter here is that it’s usually overcast. I’m personally like overcast weather the best. With that being said, here is another set of photos from a recent walk.
