I have been forced by circumstances to participate in a 50mm lens photography challenge. So I am testing out the theory that limiting yourself to one focal length will challenge the way you see and make images.
As a photographer I don’t have a lot of gear and since my 17-50mm lens is currently locked in the 17mm position and I don’t use my very old 55-200mm kit lens very often I am down to my 50mm prime lens for daily use. I’m up for the challenge!
The last couple of years have been a challenge personally and my photography has taken a back seat to life. I simply didn’t any creative energy in reserve to work on my art. Fortunately life has calmed down quite a bit and I have recently felt the pull of an itchy shutter finger.
Today I made a concerted effort to exercise that itchy shutter finger and took my dog Harry and my camera for a walk around the neighborhood. We were out for an hour or so and I made thirty-four images. Some will likely never see the light of day and others encouraged me to dig deeper into how and why I see the way I do.
It was a good walk!
