For portrait photography, I love using my 50mm F1.8 lens. It a great lens for portraits because it is able to keep the subject sharp and blur out the background. It works well under low light and I use it all the time for taking portraits.
Couldn’t resist not taking my camera along with me today when I was invited by my best friend (from High School) Jane to visit the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA. This botanical garden has a large variety of beautiful plant life from cactus gardens, Japanese gardens, indoor rain forest and so much more!
Colors splattered everywhere and I was completely inspired by the beauty of my surroundings. But today’s subject is not just the beautiful gardens, it was my friend Jane. I had asked her to be my model for the day and she was “AWESOME!” Striking a pose was natural to her and it’s always fun to shoot someone who had both natural beauty and a fun-loving spirit.
