Recently I was at the Walter Sisuslu Botanical Gardens in Little Falls (Johannesburg, South Africa.) It was a cool summers morning and had rained the night before, so there were lots of droplets around. The light was good because there was cloud cover (soft diffusion, works well ) I managed to snap off a few shots, one or two which came out really well. I realised just how important it is to have a good lens. The one I used was a Nikkor 50mm F1.8 lens. This is not a macro lens, but it is very sharp and can go down to F1.8, which allows in LOTS of that precious light. So thats what I did, opened up the aperture and took a few shots. The amazing thing is that with a lens like the 50mm, you really cant get a bad shot. It is so easy to use and sharp that you really just want to take pics all day long. Let me know what you think….take a look at my flickr stream for the pics….
