My Stethoscope

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 2 December 2009 in Miscellaneous.

I've been wanting to post photos over the last few weeks, but everyday some other task kept me away from processing my photos. Never fear, I have been shooting in the last month (although less than I would have liked) and I plan on getting some new material up on this blog. I'm also behind on replying to comments that have been left over the past several weeks, but I will get to them shortly!

Over the last month or so I've acquired some more camera gear to add to my arsenal. Today's photo was made possible by one of my exciting new editions, a 50mm f/2.0 macro lens. I've been playing with this lens for a few days now and I love it! Macro photography really opens up a whole new world. My first day with the lens I was practically rolling around in the dirt outside taking pictures of various bugs landing on flowers and the beautiful flowers themselves. I have much to learn, but I am extremely excited to add macro photography to my repertoire.

An added bonus with this lens is that it is a great for portraits (so I 've read). This goes hand in hand with my other equipment acquisition which is a speedlight. These pieces of equipment come in good time as the cold weather is finally rolling into the NYC area. While I'm still going to get my butt outside, I have plenty of indoor photography projects to keep me busy.

If you enjoy my work you may visit my permanent website where you can view my photos.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
