  1. Excellent tips! Another creative limitation is letting someone else pick out the theme and location and just showing up to shoot. When I shot with you and Ariana I had to do more creative thinking in the moment because I didn’t have any pre planned poses or backgrounds. This could work for landscape photography too…. Have someone else surprise you with a location and just show up and shoot to the best of your ability.

  2. Thanks for the tips! I always hate paying for photo stock so I try to get out and make my own when possible.

  3. Excellent video and suggestions. I used to do several of these, although I have to admit, I really never did force the single aperture. Interesting exercise. I do have a 50mm f/1.2 AI/S lens that has a particular character at f/1.2. I will go out with the purpose of seeing the world in the f/1.2 space. But I’ll also jump up to f/2 and f/11 in a heartbeat with probably f/4 being the most selected after f/1.2. Well done.

  4. Thank you! I bet seeing the world in f1.2 would be amazing!!! I imagine f4 with that lens would be it’s sharpest point!

  5. I try to stock up on my own stock Photographs as well! I’m glad I was able to help!

  6. @Pinkhat Photography This particular lens has a flaw. At f/1.2 the bokeh becomes creamy. You either like the look or you don’t. At f/2 it is pretty damn sharp. I don’t remember if it is f/2 or f/4 that is the sharpest. At one time I believe that f-stop it was the sharpest lens in existence. Nikon still makes this lens today as it did in the 1970s, although I would suspect the lens elements have a better coating I really don’t know. Mine is only about 5 years old although I’ve wanted one ever since the 1970s.

  7. I’m going to have to look into this lens! Hahaha f1.8 is currently my widest! A new 85mm is my priority now though

  8. @Pinkhat Photography You will really enjoy the 85mm f/1.8 It is a great lens. If I had to choose between the AF-S 85mm f/1.8G and the AF-S 105mm f/2.8G Micro VR, I would choose the 105mm. I feel the 85mm is better suited to portraits but the 105 does a fantastic job on portraits and it’s micro/macro capability is hard to beat. It’s just more versatile. With the said, in a studio with limited space, the 85mm is a better choice. (BTW, this may be a double comment. It thought I posted something similar yesterday.)

  9. Hahahaha you’re good! The 105 is on my list too! The 85s I’ve used I’ve absolutely loved!

  10. You’re informative and entertaining. Could you give a short def of terms used like “prime” lens.

  11. Absolutely! A prime lens has a set focal length, so they don’t zoom, the only way to zoom in or out is to physically move forward and backwards as apposed to a telephotic lens. The advantage to prime lenses is that they are generally sharper, cheaper and faster than a telephotic lens. By faster I mean they have a higher aperture opening! I hope that helps
