My macro, for example, represents discovery. It taps into my curiosity and love of nature. I feel a sense of seeing and discovering something for the first time. Being a science and nature nut, it enables me to learn about new plants and bugs. I feel like I am revealing something so small, but so large and important, and it gives me the opportunity to be close and personal with what I am shooting. And it’s a lens I always use when I am alone, so it also represents sweet serenity.
And, one of my favorites, my 50mm. This lens is the lens I use to shoot people and animals… my son, my dog. I just love it… its small, unobtrusive and lets me stay close to my subject, which is usually my son, and interact. It is fast and allows me to really capture a moment. And the photos are just lovely, this lens has a fair amount of bokeh so the pictures really enable you to focus on a specific subject and often times a certain feature, like the eyes.
A few shots from yesterday of the one thing I love more than any lens, my sweet baby boy.
