day 266: coffee bubbles
Look, a macro picture of coffee! Did I mention my coffee addiction? Yes, I did. Several times.
The other day I was finally making some order in my pictures again and suddenly I realised that I have been basically only using my prime lens for several months. This is strange, since originally I wanted to experiment a lot with different perspectives and ways of looking at the different details of certain things that people don’t necessarily notice. I mean, I love my 50mm f/1.4, since it’s fast and produces very nice bokeh, but with my crop body it is in a way a very limited lens. Until today when I finally changed my lens, this was probably the only picture this year that was taken with my 18-55mm lens. I also used a macro converter, which in some way makes it hard to focus, but it can already produce some very nice results, although it’s just a cheap gadget. For me a macro lens would probably be useless and just collect dust in some corner, since I hardly ever shoot flowers. Maybe one day I’ll try some black and white flower shots, but in all the colourful detail of them I just find them so boring!
Such a difference it was today shooting with 18mm and f/3.5 in the dark. This lens needs so much more light! I’ll be shooting with my 18-55mm lens for a week now and you can expect to see some more wide-angle shots when I finally catch up with posting these pictures. Still some time to go, since this picture was taken at the beginning of the month that is now ending.
