Me Again

Posted by
Monte Stevens (Fort Collins, United States) on 11 May 2009 in People & Portrait.

Since I purchased the AF-S Nikon 35mm f1.8 G lens, it has become my travel lens while I work as a flight attendant. I no longer carry a camera bag but wrap my camera, with lens attached, in some clothing and fly the blue skies. It’s small size and light weight make it easy to pack in my roller board or even in my RON bag. And, in my opinion takes some pretty sharp images. I do not carry a tripod so any self-portraits will be handheld, as in this image. The light for this image is from my hotel window just as the sun is going down.

This is a wonderful self portrait.

I have the 50mm f1.4 and it is also a wonderful lens (pretty much equivalent to your 35mm on the D700 full frame). Nice and light. I used it on today's image.

@Laurie: I looked at that one but the 35mm was cheaper and on my budget and the D300, it fit better. That lens would be a nice portrait lens.
