118 Pictures in 2018 - #31: "Follow the Path"

Tissue Paper
Fun with a Tissue Paper and a Macro Lens

I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but my Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens is my favorite for everyday shooting, and the lens I use the vast majority of the time. Don't let the word Macro scare you off (actually, inexplicably, Nikon calls it "Micro"). If you don't want to get up close and personal with things you don't need to, and it works just fine (better than fine!) as a "normal" lens.

The lens of mine that takes the BEST pictures (it's not even close) is the Nikkor 135mm f/2.0, a gorgeous portrait lens that I really should use more often. Alas, I need to be 20 feet away from the boys to get them both in the picture. It's doable, I just need to plan their poses a bit more carefully.

Hmm... I really should break it out for the New Year. Every time I do I wonder why I ever took it off.
