50mm VS 75-300mm + Photo Catch Up

50mm COMPARED.png
Photo taken using kit lens.

 

I think it’s time for another experiment post. Today I will be photographing a few subjects switching between two canon lenses: f/1.8 50mm, and the f/3.5 75-300mm.

This will be fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Firstly, I am going to show the big lens at it’s most common focal lengths at the aperture f/4.5. Then I will use the 50mm at the same aperture. After that I will show a photo of the 50mm using f/1.8.

The second part of the post will be some photos I took recently on both lenses. ๐Ÿ™‚

Click on any of the images in the thumbnail grid to view my basic camera settings.

This grids images are the 75-300mm lens’s photos at it’s different major focal lengths. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

The first image is my 50mm lens’s photo of the mason jar at f/4.5. The second is the 50mm at f/1.8.

This is the shots from the 75-300mm (I was wrong about staying at an aperture of 4.0. I actually changed it a little more to maintain proper exposure while zooming inย ^^โ€™ย . ๐Ÿ˜‰

Once again the 50mm was set at 4.5 and 1.8. If you click on them you’ll be able to tell which is which.

Photo Dump {Random}

Hello guys!

 

This is gonna be scary. I have never done a photo dump before. Expect a lot of pictures in this post. I will try to cut in down. Oh, also don’t expect all in the proper order… ๐Ÿ˜† .

New Editor= Image Changes

Guys…photo director 3 is #nice !

I love it.

There are more practical uses…like this photo:

And more fun editing to do like in this photo:

IMG_6298 (2017_04_18 03_06_52 UTC).jpg
I mean, look at those eyes!

Then there are just nice settings to improve white balance and softening. Like in this image:IMG_7171.jpg

 

All in all…it’s been a ride.

I do acknowledge that this sort of editor COULD make one lazy. But I refuse to be that type of person when it comes to editing. I still prefer quality from my camera…I only like basic editing for my actual photography stuff.

The Beauty of Spring

“Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.”

~Sarah Ban Breathnach

And boy, have the spring rains come here! I wasn’t quite expecting a tornado warning, or thunder that made our little half-underground house shake. But it happened. This post is not to show you the pictures of rain (except maybe one ๐Ÿ˜› ), but rather to show you the typical signs of spring. Daffodils, strong light lighting, and maybe some other flowers, too? ๐Ÿ˜‰

And at last the rain photo. It’s really more of a raindrop photo. I had my camera set to such a quick shutter speed (1/4000) that it caught the raindrops, and one of them in particular- in focus.

The compromise was a much more grainy image. But this time, I think it’s worth it. I almost don’t mind the grain.

Rain or Shine?

“Some people are never content with their lot, let what will happen. Clouds and darkness are over their heads, alike whether it rain or shine. To them every incident is an accident, and every accident a calamity.”

~Charles Spurgeon
No, I haven’t posted for a few days anything photography related. But- here I am with another post! I have decided to call itย Rain or Shine?ย because the past few days had been fairly rainy. Until the day before yesterday, that is. The rain pictures are from different days.

Shine

 

My little sister got an adorable pink plaid driver’s cap and I thought it’d be cute to take a photo of her in it. And I was so happy when the rain cleared up!img_3192

The next two pictures were gotten because my grandparents’ car has a blue tint to it. So the first picture shows the blue tint, and the second emphasizes it in monochrome (black and white).
