Week 6 of 52

Finally pulled the trigger on this and got myself a second hand Nikon D700 with Nikkor 35mm F2D as well as Nikkor 85mm F1.8D.

I’ll talk more about this purchase perhaps in a separate post. This week the topic would be 35mm.

Throughout the week I’ve been shooting the LX3 using the 7.4mm focal length, which is equivalent to 35mm focal length on full frame. By limiting the focal length I can use, it allows me to familiarize myself with the characteristics of that particular focal length and focus on how to make good use of it.

The photo is the Nikkor 35mm F2D lens. It was taken right on this afternoon as I was rather unsatisfied with the photos I’ve taken throughout the week. When I looked at the lens on my table, the idea struck me and quickly I pulled out my LX3 and start looking for the right angle so that I could capture the reflections on the lens. Never would I have thought that the internals of the lens too produces some rather interesting bluish and aqua-ish reflection hue.
