Aisle Seat

Viewing my friend Jacob Lucas’s post from yesterday got me feeling nostalgic for the old school.

On this particular visit to the abandoned school, I decided to shoot only with my 50mm f1.4 lens, considered, by many photographers, the one lens they can’t do without.

I can see why. It is small, compact and fast. it produces wonderfully soft bokeh and helps push your creativity.

Having visited this place a couple of times before, I needed a new perspective. The 50mm helped me see it differently.

  1. This might be one of my favourites of yours from the old school. Love the shallow depth of field and the rows upon rows of old seats.

  2. Fantastic Bob. I think more people should shoot HDR with the 50mm and a wide open aperture. It really does make for an incredible effect, as you have well displayed!

  3. Dude!! This one rocks like hard candy so much my teeth hurt!! Did that make sense? Hells no it didn’t, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tasty shot. My eye goes straight to that 2nd set of seats and stays there, wanting to take a seat to watch whatever creepy walking dead zombie flick is showing!!
