Today my new 50mm f/1.8 lens arrived. I haven’t been this excited since my dSLR showed up. The only thing is, I have no idea how to use it. My internet friend Shutterboo warned me that it might take some time for everything to click.
Okay, based on my photography learning track record, it could take me 2 years before I completely comprehend how to use this new lens. A little back story…I took a photography class many, many moons ago. In a nutshell, when it came time to learn aperture I was suddenly transported back to 10th grade Geometry class, which I hated, because I was too stupid to grasp it.
But after reading up a little more on aperture, not Geometry, it only took me 5 years to grasp the subject.
That’s because in the words of Homer Simpson, I am S-M-R-T.
So this little learning experience should be fun.
And by fun I mean insanely painful.
