Remembering To Look Behind Me with my 24mm Lens

Sometimes, especially when I’m out with my 50mm lens, I forget to turn around and look behind me. With this new 24mm lens, I wanted to start off strong by at least remembering to turn around and see what’s there. I can get some interesting lighting and perspectives that way. Coming from the 50mm, the 24mm is wider than I’m used to, so I’m still playing with perspective and composition a little. I think these turned out pretty alright for some quick shots. You can see the full resolution on my Flickr.

These photos may not be the most breathtaking, but I like them. I’m going to start experimenting with printing some of my photos soon. I got one shot yesterday that I want to see how it turns out printed.

It’s Friday, so I’m able to relax a little more. I have to catch up on some college stuff this weekend, but I’m still going to make sure I get out for an hour or two each day and take some photos. Hopefully I keep remembering to turn around and look behind me.

I need to work on getting some portraits of people if I want to get some paid gigs. Also, I still need to closer in general for my street photography. I’m pretty comfortable with my 50mm, but I don’t have to get as close with that lens on my current camera, because of the sensor size. Camera stuff is expensive so I figure a good way to get money for it is some side-hustling with my current equipment. I’ll probably start working on that soon.

Have a good weekend and let me know what you think of the photos in the comments. You can also follow me on Instagram.

    Both photos are great, but if I had to choose, I’d pick the first one.
