Last night I was outside barbecuing and playing with my camera. I was using the 40 and 50 mm. Canon lenses. I like that I was able to shoot with one, with the other in my pocket. .
In the distance I could hear geese flying my way. With no time to go in and grab our 55-250 mm. I just aimed and clicked. I am very pleased with the ease of use of both these lenses, and how compact they are. I was surprised with how close I could get with the 50 mm, considering the geese were forty feet above me.
I like taking pictures of the sky, especially when a storm is brewing. When the birds start coming into shore you know you are in for a show. I also like when it dissipates, and the sun starts peaking through.
I was using my 75-300 zoom lens. Anyone have suggestions for what lens would be more appropriate for these types of shots?
My mom has been looking at our photo’s and caught the bug. She has a Canon Sure Shot. I have an old one and was quite happy with it. After taking shots like these…
…she wants a camera with a macro and zoom lens. She is torn between buying a Canon or Nikon. She wants to spend less on the camera and more on the lens. Anyone have a moderately priced one. Any preference on brand? Input would be appreciated.
