So I recently rented two lenses from Rentglass for a couple of weeks. This concept of lens rental is so awesome and the pricing is very reasonable. I have been wanting to buy the Nikon 50mm f1.4 and 35mm f1.8 lenses for some time but since that isn't in the budget now, Rentglass provides a great alternative. Both lenses take amazing photographs and the only downside is that now I want to own them even more. I did a photoshoot on Saturday using only the 35mm and I'm super happy with the results. It is amazing how well the lens performs in low light, easily doing a better job than my current equipment. It will be hard returning this stuff because I'll have gotten a glimpse of what I could have. One day!
I will post the first part of the photoshoot tomorrow but today I am showcasing some pictures I took with just the 50mm in my backyard.
What are these? Tangelos, kumquats? A group of us couldn't decide the other day...I think they are kumquats.
And my favorite picture (or series of pictures):
This pomegranate was blowing in the wind, hence the varied focus points. Despite being cracked open and dried up, I think it was a beautiful find.
I am so glad I rented these lenses. I've had so much fun exploring with them!
