My new nifty fifty put to the test! by lyndamcg

My new nifty fifty put to the test!

I am doing a free online camera course (but I have bought the workbooks!) called A Year With My Camera, would recommend to beginners or inexperienced photographers like myself. Any way, had to take 20 random shots with your least used lens. I have just bought my nifty fifty and not had much chance to use it yet so ideal. Have to say I love it and will use it loads I'm sure, especially for portraits! I have also started to use back button focus and once i get used to it this is going to be a godsend! Looking through the blinds at the chimney pot i just focus on the pot, press button, release and if i move slightly focus stays on the pot and doesnt go from blinds to pot, pot to blinds - no need to focus again- very clever!
Very nifty collage of your work. I conquered the back button focus a while ago and will never go back - such a helpful tool. Your course sounds most useful.

Some lovely shots in your collage! I love my nifty fifty too, but wasn’t sure if I would - a lens that doesn’t zoom!
Have also heard of your course , and of the back button focus - not tried it yet though. Must give it a try.

Fabulous collage and lovely shots. I did the course too but do not have such a fancy camera. It sounds great, wish I had that back button 😉

@ludwigsdiana Thank you - you may be able to swap the focus button on your camera Diana. I went on utube and found out how to do it.

@carole_sandford thanks Carole, yes give it a try. Takes a bit of getting used to but very useful, especially if doing portraits as once you have focused can take as many shots as you like without refocusing as long as distance from model stays the same.

@kiwinanna it is a good course to make me use my camera - I know the theory behind everything but then when out with camera I forget yo change settings!
