a 50 and green

I think I have said before that I like simple lenses for fun personal photography. I was at a workshop last weekend where I was working with other photographers teaching the use of their basic 50mm lens for great portraits.  By the way, the 50mm should be the first lens everyone should think of upgrading to (and the cheapest lens out there.)  There is something about it that forces you to be a photographer instead of a snap shooter...maybe it is because it allows/forces you to think more.

For a recent trip to Sarah’s produce isle garden, I slapped my old 50mm lens on my outdated camera. Yes I wanted a macro at times but I actually had a lot of fun…and was surprised by how ‘old’ and ‘inferior’ gear can still make pictures.
