More photos of Coerceo. This time I setup the board in the initial position and started shooting that. I used tripod to stabilize the camera and took out several lenses... Here's one with the kit lens, as it was the only one to offer the ~24mm focal length I needed. Not a bad photo.

Then, a closeup with the 100mm lens. Took a portrait orientation, I think it gives this photo a nice twist, with all the diagonal lines going on.

It's been a while since I last used the nifty fifty (50mm/1.8). It's pretty awful, actually, now that I used it. I thought the 35mm/2 I have is a bit clunky, but the plastic fantastic is even worse. It buzzes like crazy while hunting for AF. Not my favourite lens, no, and no wonder I've been using the 35 a lot more.

Anyway, I like the photo. The 50mm lens did decent background blur as well, that can sometimes be a problem. This is shot wide open.
