This weekend I figured it is time to get out of the “single lens” dillema so I went to get myself a new lens. I got a Nikkor 50mm that opens at 1.8 it’s a pretty inexpensive (nice way of saying cheap) lens which is very fast and thus great for bokeh shots.
As we were walking around in the Marais in Paris I wanted to try it out. The weather sucked so there was no nice landscape shot to take. But as we were walking down a street in the Marais (I think it was Rue Verrerie) there was choir practicing in a church. So we went in to listen a bit, and it was really pretty. As the choir left I took this shot, it is handheld and inside a church with 5 photos it was not an easy task.
But with the 1.8 lens it turned out pretty good. I had to do some work on sharpening it in Lightroom but overall I really like the colors. Yes the stained glass window is burnt out but if it wasn’t the shot would look weird – it’s just not natural. So I left it like that.
Hope you like it too.
