kit lens Seaside daisy
Posted By: fevbusch, 05-17-2007, 02:56 PM

I was checking out Sooming's recent great kit lens work and was inspired to strap on my 18-55. Shot this on a cloudy afternoon (today) on my terrace. AV mode f16 Iso 400. C & C welcome. Freddy

Really nice Freddy, white flowers are so hard to do. Either I over expose them, or underexpose them so they look all grey. You nailed these two. I also like how one is fully opened and the other is in the "process". Nice shot! It's too bad the kit lens is "so bad". pzzzzzztttt!

Thanks, H2O. I think the graininess of the ISO 400 helped define the petals. I can see, though, that the Sigma 50mm 2.8 EX works better in low light. I'm still going to shoot more with the kit lens when I get good sunlight. I'm sure I'll get some terrific shots because the kit and the 50-200 (which I have still to acquire) are really good lenses.
