Zebra portrait. Quote for the weekend: “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”
– Robert Capa. .
Zebra factoid: Those black and white stripes…camouflage from lions, leopards, and other predators? Not so fast, scientific studies hove now discovered they may be nature’s bug repellent! Apparently flies are confused by the b&w pattern. Who knew?
📸Photo Tip: Equipment investment. People often ask me which camera they should purchase. In my honest opinion and in layman’s terms, I would invest more into the lens choice than the camera. Lenses are the key to sharp images and a good lens is everything! How do you know if it’s a good lens? Price and weight is a start! In general, a less expensive lens will be very light in weight compared to a good quality lens. Prime or zoom lens? Generally prime lenses are typically sharper than zoom lenses due to the amount of moving parts. The glass inside is very precise, thus resulting in sharper images. In zoom lenses, a key factor is the aperture opening, try to stick with a constant large aperture such as a f/2.8 (or larger) and stay away from the variable apertures, such as 4.5-5.6. With variable apertures, your aperture will change as you increase the focal distance of your lens.
In the end you will find that you will upgrade your cameras long before you upgrade your lenses, provide you purchased quality lenses to begin with. Just something to think about on your next purchase! .
