The other day we were at a friend's house and they let me borrow all their lenses. I was struggling getting my kids to stay in one place so I decided to use a book. So tried out a variety of the lenses and it really changed my perspective and how I thought about shooting things. I also figured out two the lenses I want to get next.
The first picture I took was with a 16-35 mm - It was taken at 16 mm (1/125 ss & F2.8)
This one I took with the 70-200 mm F4 lens at 70 mm (1/80 ss & F4)
This one still with the 70-200 mm but now at 138 mm (1/60 ss & F/4).
I really enjoyed the wide angle lens but made me realize that I would only use it for street photography and I could hold off on that. My friend had an 85 mm lens and wow the pictures that I took with that lens had a nice creamy background that just made me drool and love that lens and I didn't think I was really a prime girl. Then trying the 70-200 mm F/4 was a nice lens. It would be perfect for when I wanted to go hiking and take pictures of stuff. I would have a good long telephoto lens with that and then a medium length lens with my 24-70 mm. I guess I will just have to keep experimenting with different lenses to see what my style is. But just using all those lenses made me realize how much perspective is changing your position and then how your perspective can change and how your picture can change just by using a different focal length.
