Sandy Bottom Nature Park and New Lens

So for Christmas I received a Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.8G lens and I was (and still am) so very excited for the amazing bokeh and portrait photography that I will be able to take with this amazing prime lens. As a beginner, I have to play around and do my research a lot more to fully utilize the potential of this lens, but discovery is always the best part! I didn’t particularly like any of these photographs too much, but I had literally just opened the lens and they told me the park was closing in 5 minutes…so this is what I did in 5 minutes haha. Not the greatest, but I can already tell how amazing this lens is and once again I am so excited to keep playing around with it!

 P.S. Did you catch how amazing I think this lens is? Enjoy!

P.P.S. That water was rock solid, and I was so tempted to run across it…but I’m not that crazy.

      Yes! I love it as well! I just started a challenge for myself taking 50 shots with my 50mm its on my other blog–I’m open to any tips! haha

        Hmm, might have to do that myself. I am posting a 365 challenge on Instagram at the moment and 50×50 could work too (I have a trip at the end of May and I have to use more than just my 50mm for that haha)
