It is fall in Saint Petersburg Florida and we are enjoying the weather! The humidity has dropped, temps are in the 70’s to low 80’s and outdoor activities have become enjoyable again. Scott and I took Ana on a walk to Northshore Park this weekend and enjoyed the perfect temps and sunset. I had recently upgraded my 50mm nikon 1.8 lens from the D series to a G and wanted to test the lens. We walked along the bay through Northshore Park and arriving at Flora Wylie Park for these casual photographs of our family.
Scott helped Ana sit up, while I quickly got a few shots of her. I wouldn’t say she can sit up on her own quite yet, but we have been practicing with her at home. Most of these images were shot between F2.5; I rarely shoot at 1.4 so I decided the Nikon 50mm 1.4 wasn’t a necessary upgrade. This lens tends to be used more when I photograph weddings, but comes in handy sometime when I am taking photos of Ana. For an amateur photographer, this is the first prime lens I would buy to get away from the kit zoom with variable apertures and at $200 isn’t a major investment. I shoot this lens a lot on vacation… lightweight, decent for impromptu portraits and nice for low light details.
Ana and I happened to be wearing matching greens, which I think makes this photo of us look nice. Thanks Scott!
