Photo Info

  • Location: Old Town Temecula, California
  • Camera used: Nikon D40x (retired)
  • Lens used: Nikkor 50mm f1.8 
  • Shot at f1.8

The very first lens I purchased, after I made the transition from a point and shoot to a DSLR, was a 50mm f1.8. It was probably the best $100 or so I ever spent and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable first lens (outside of the kit lens that might be bundled with a DSLR).

That lens stayed on my camera about 75% of the time, until I upgraded cameras and lenses. The 50mm f1.8 lens gave me the ability to hone in on a subject in the foreground and blur out the background to the point where the objects in the background looked unrecognizable and abstract.
