This weekend, I challenged myself to put my 50mm f/1.8 lens camera in aperture priority mode and shoot at f/1.8 and only f/1.8. I was really uncomfortable with choosing my own camera settings instead of letting the camera choose for me, but I am so glad I did it.

I encourage all of you who are feeling burned out with photography to do a simple little challenge like this. It can really get your creativity flowing.

Which photo is your favorite?

  2. Oh wow, I love all of the pictures! I think that they look really neat. Hmmm, I think my favorite one would have to be #2, it looks very unique. It's amazing how when you change the lens on your camera, it makes the picture look completely different! =D Thank for sharing!!

  3. Number 3 and the last are my absolute favorite. I'm seeing this lens everywhere and I'm really thinking about buying one.
