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.

Technically, these aren’t photos of the Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville. But, you can see it in them so that’s good enough for me. I like how these turned out. The second one is a little underwhelming, might have to crop it, or try to get a better shot sometime. I was trying out my 24mm lens. I’ve been testing my Canon 24mm lens for a few days.

Today, I received my Canon 24mm lens that I ordered over the weekend. I went for a walk on my lunchbreak with it and snapped a few things. My camera has an APS-C sensor, which means it has a crop factor because it’s not a full frame 35mm sensor. After all the math is applied, my 24mm is basically a 35mm lens on this camera. I primarily used my 50mm lens before I got this, which was essentially an 80mm lens on this camera. Basically, I can get wider shots now. Here’s what I got today.

I’ve been blogging this week about practicing with my Conan 55mm-250mm lens on my Rebel SL3. I don’t often get many good photos on my way to work. However, yesterday on my lunchbreak I walked over to do some street photography at The Belvedere in Downtown Louisville. I got some interesting shots. The Belvedere was a great place to get shots of people before the pandemic. Unfortunately, it’s not very urban-like when I’m wanting to go for that. But, it’s still a pretty place.

I was originally going for a nice black and white photo with nice contrast, but I think the color version might do the scene more justice.
