50mm VS 75-300mm + Photo Catch Up

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.

WHAT???? That’s not what you’re supposed to be on?

What happened to the ‘what you wore’ thingy? I’m switching challenges. Yep. Switching. Because I found a challenge that I think is actually more conducive to my schedule and everything else. So I present the new challenge!



As you can see–day one is the same on the other challenge. So I’m right on track. Some of this is going to take some figuring…where on earth am I going to find a baby on the exact day? I might just have to skip that one ๐Ÿ˜ฆ . But otherwise…this is better for me.

This challenge is so much more convenient than the other one ๐Ÿ™‚
