Photography | What's new

Today's post is a little update on my photography set up.
Recently, I bought a new lens for my Sony a6000 as I noticed that for indoor photography my kit lens could not (or I wasn't able) give me the results or type of photographs I was looking for.

When shooting indoors, I mostly do food or products (yeah, I will start sharing a few more of those here) and normally, the light condition is not so good anymore.
After some extensive research and debating if I should or not put some money into this or not, I finally made up my mind and order a Sony SEL35F18. This means it is a 35mm lens with a maximum aperture of 1.8.
It comes with two caps (front & back) and lens hood.
Why I choose this lens? Well, since the Sony a6000 is not a full frame and has a cropped factor of about 1.53, this lens will be an equivalent of a 50mm on a full frame camera.
I watched and read several reviews, but there was one that really helped me out. Watch the video here.
So far, I have used this lens only for product photography and I am super happy with the results! It allows me to take nice sharp photos even in low light conditions due to the large aperture number.
Since this lens has a fixed focal length, in order to "zoom in or out" you must move forward or backward. A little bit of exercise hurt nobody, right?

In the near future, I want to take this baby out on the street and see what I can come up with.
