This week’s 52 project assignment was “50mm”, an open-ended assignment. I had different aspirations when I headed to the dog park with my family of fetch-lovers, but I ended up choosing a collection of some of my favorite representative photos of our fetch session.
The 50mm lens is my go-to lens for dog shelter shooting and it’s synonymous to me with low f-stop / high aperture shooting since I’ve shot with both the Canon 50mm f/1.8 and f/1.4. I usually go for it when I want a really blurry backround, nice bokeh, and/or some nice lens flare. And with the greater aperture values, you can still shoot at pretty high shutter speeds in lower light conditions, which is great for moving animals!
