Yesterday I went to campus with Paul’s brother John and he let me try out all of his different lenses and gave me a little photography lesson. I wish I had written down the details of each shot as I took it but my hands were so cold I didn’t. : P For these three photos I used his EF 50mm standard lens. The first photo was taken at the lowest f/stop the lens offers, which is 1.8, and the following photos were at progressively higher f/stops (4 and 5.6 maybe?). The lowest f/stop is clearly the best option in this case for getting a really clear picture of the subject (which is John!), because it let in a lot of light and blurred out the background a lot, making the subject more prominent.
… I think I explained that right. My apologies if not! : )
I’ve now developed two rolls in the past two days, so I’ll probably alternate between the photos I took with Amy on Friday and the ones I took yesterday with John. Let me know what you think, please!
