Photography Project #43-#49
I bought a new 50mm lens for my Canon D1200, also known as the “nifty 50” and portrait lens. I hesitated getting one because I wanted to first get to know my basic kit lens and camera, but I gave in to temptation. The effects are remarkably different.
Can you spot the bee? I used shutter speed priority to try to capture this, but I guess the bees were flying too quickly.
I was helping M get a new lens for his camera as the other one broke, and ended up trying out the 50mm lens for my own camera and caving in.
This is the “red lips” plant, on my Singapore walk finding local edibles with GOS, I learnt about these red lips leaves. They can be steeped in hot water for a tisane or used in cocktails. I have usually seen them in bushes of green leaves peppered with red leaves, but it’s the first time I see them growing out from tiny branches in red.
Testing depths of field with the side walk flowers. I love Singapore for this – it’s full of greens. 💚 Something I used to take for granted.
Chasing my own reflections.
