For a cropped sensor camera, 10mm or 11mm is a good starting focal length. Currently, I use a Nikon 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Lens on … Continue reading "Using a Wide Angle Zoom at the Magic Kingdom"

Wide Angle Lens Love

I’m a Canon girl. I bought my first Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera when I was 16 years old at Levine’s in Boston, MA. I remember the day rather well (a miracle for me). My heart was set on the Canon Rebel S because (remember I was 16) it was endorsed by Andre Agassi and … Continue reading "Wide Angle Lens Love"

Picture if you will

Most of the lenses in this class are considered some of the best ever made. Over the last three years, I have purchased two f/2.8 lenses … Continue reading "Walt Disney World at f/2.8"
