Another outstanding photo from Scott to follow up. I'm a pretty lucky girl, or I guess maybe I'm unlucky because how does one follow up such great photos. This is my quandary.
While I sort out my rather confusing feelings you can go over and enter to win this weeks Wordless Wednesday, all the cool kids are doing it.
While I was thinking about what I should take a photo of I decided that anything snow covered would do. So off I went to the job site I "work" at from time to time. Scott went with a soft and delicate blooming flower and went with the polar opposite. A hard, stark, brick.
Nikon D40 kit lens @ 42mm
shutter speed 1/800
Another non-macro macro. I was really working on finding the "sweet spot" on my lens. I've been reading that all lenses, even the often poo-pooed kit lens, has a sweet spot. A spot where given the right aperture, the right shutter speed and the right light, the lens will truly shine. I think I figured out today that my "sweet spot" is right around the f/5.3 that this was taken at. My tookis was freezing so my analysis is incomplete but it's a starting position for sure.
So tell me fellow photogs... Do you believe in the sweet spot? Have you found it on your favorite lenses.
