Six Reasons

Six reasons why I like my Canon 50mm f1.8 lens:

1. It was - and still is - cheap and sharp. (How's $120 Cdn. for ya?)

2. I love shooting in natural light without flash and a wide aperture is great for maximizing available natural light.

3. I love using a shallow depth of field to soften backgrounds and focus attention.

4. Since it's a fixed lens, it forces you to 'zoom with your feet'. Instead of sitting on your duff zooming in and out, you tend to get up, move around and try new things.

5. Did I mention natural light?

6. Shots like these ones are so easy to get.
