31st October 2010 – I had a photo outing today with Ernest and Lord Twiggie. Since we are shooting at the night market, the best lens for the job in my bag would be the Minolta 50mm f/1.7. I’ve restricted myself in using the 50mm throughout the whole shoot and without the aid of flash.
What do you expect in a typical Malaysian night market? People of course! The whole series of this photo blog contain mostly people.
After using the Minolta 50mm f/1.7 prime lens for many shooting occasions, I really appreciate the range, the f-stop, and the low price of the lens that offers. It’s true that 50mm prime lens is a great and affordable lens to have for all DSLR owners. Some photographers would say 50mm is only meant for Full Frame cameras, however I do not concur with this statement. How you utilize the range is up to your own creativity. These pictures are fresh from camera with minor color adjustment.
