Buying a Wide Angle Lens: What I Didn’t Know
This was shot with my 50mm 1.4, so I was able to get nice bokeh in the background…even though the focus is a bit off. A failed shot for me, but a good example for this article. Settings: f/1.4, 1/50, ISO 640…pushing my settings to their limit. Still a bit soft though. Taken in Hawaii, 2.9.13 when I was still learning how to design my shots.
