Just some random shots from my backyard. Im new to the whole nature photography thing. I normally shoot weddings and people. The ones with the water are from a couple of days ago, and the ones without are from this evening right at dusk.


ISO 100 f/11 1/160


ISO 100 f/11 1/8


ISO100 f/8 1/160

A 50mm 1.7

ISO100 f/7.1 1/180

A 50mm 1.7 - This is one of my favs, the softness makes it looks so euphoric.

ISO100 f/1.7 1/8

Tokina 80mm-400mm My neighbors "bottle tree" with a floodlight backlight.

Any critique or comments are welcome!

Thanks for looking,

Both my 50mm's stay on my camera more than any other lens I have. They are amazing lenses! Plus something about manual focus makes me feel so fuzzy inside!
