His and hers photos tall trees Yosemite
Last post I talked about how I FINALLY began to use the manual settings on my camera and how I set them. In this post I wanted to show you the difference between hubby's camera and lens and mine. I have a Nikon D40x ( a relatively old and inexpensive model), with a Tamron 18-200 mm lens which also has the MACRO (close-up) feature. He has a newer Canon Rebel with a 50 mm wide angle lens, which I believe is a Zeiss lens. I can take macro shots that he can't, but he can get those beautiful, wide angle shots that I can't. So, I figure we complement each other pretty well. The bottom 3 photos are some that he took at the Mariposa grove, which is right inside the west entrance to Yosemite. The top 3 are mine that I took at the same location. See the difference? And, yes, that's me walking toward the fallen tree. I really just wanted to show you all the difference between our two lenses. His lets MUCH more light in, since it is wider than mine. However, I can zoom in and focus on things far away, but he can't. I do like the effect of the wide angle lens and someday I'd love to have one, but for now, I'm happy with what I have!
