So this is a bit off the initial topic and continuing with the lens theme here. I’ve got 5 lenses at present, the kit, a 50mm 1.8, a 90-300 (it sucks and I never use it anymore), and 2 old manual lenses with M42 mounts which I don’t use on shoots as I find it difficult to get perfect focus.

Anyway, as  Nesgran said about the kit. I use this and the 50mm all the time, that’s it. I HATE that these are the only lenses of any use to me but I make them work for me. If you’re going to be a pixel peeper then I see the serious disadvantages that come with using these, but most clients aren’t going to notice whether you use a £100 lens or a £2000 lens when they get their prints. The only reason I want a Canon 24-70 f/2.8 and the 70-200 f/2.8 is due to reliability. My lens hunts for focus under certain light where these more expensive lenses SHOULD hit the mark.

I shot a wedding in Snowdonia (Wales, UK) over the weekend and I’ve come back with some great shots using the 50mm 90% of the weekend. I am NOT a wedding photographer and was doing it for a friend of mine and for the chance to visit a beautiful part of my country and stay for free.

go to my FB page and have a look at the sneak peeks. I’m not looking for harsh criticism but if you have any sound advice then please message me and let me know. Please don’t leave it on the wall or in the album, they haven’t even had their honeymoon yet, hahaha.
