January 17th: Learning the hard way...

So today's post isn't a pleasant one... I'm posting a photo that I'm really not happy with... Here's the backstory:

A friend of mine is loaning me his 50mm f/1.8 (Manual focus with my D3000). I love it to PIECES!!! However, there's a downside... I've been so obsessed with the f/1.8 that I haven't really upped the aperture. So I've been shooting with it purely at 1.8. This presents problems. This photo is the prime example.

I really hate the back portion of this bowl of grits. The focal point is too small. I just absolutely hate that I ruined a picture of these amazing grits. I am really upset with myself and I've definitely learned my lesson. Less obsession is more... More better!! :P 

So here's to breaking bad habits and getting over the honeymoon phase with this lens!! On to the dedicated and loyal portion of our relationship!


  1. You are too cute! Enjoy the borrowed lens!

  2. Lucky to borrow that lens but the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX Lens is wonderful and best for the D3000 (what I have). Might want to check that out.
