What is 505050?

The idea is to use a 50mm lens to take one shot a day for 50 consecutive days. The images posted will be unmodified ... well, I'll convert them from RAW into JPEG, but that's all. Some images may benefit for a bit of a twiddle and they will appear either on my flickr pages or my blog. Have fun looking over my attempts and please make comments and offer encouragement to complete the 50 day project.

Shot #50

The end!  50 shots in 50 days with a 50mm lens.  All done!  Today's shot sees me next to a 50kmph road sign.  What a handsome chap eh?

I've found the exercise a challenge.  The main reasons have been conflicting activities, not having the camera available when required, the inspiration to see the shot and then, of course, the energy to get out there and do something!

I've learnt a lot about my 50mm lens and have to say I'm VERY pleased with it, in particular the sharpness of the resultant images and its shallow depth of field.  It's made me look with interest at other prime lenses with wide apertures.

Today's shot?  Tripod mounted, 50mm lens, f4, 1/640sec, ISO 200.


  1. Great job! Very fun project to watch.

  2. Thanks Lace. Let me know when you start your 50mm lens project ;-)

  3. Well done! I have to ask: what next?

  4. Well, I finally got around to having a look at the end of this series! Very good. I see you've been busy since them. Meanwhile term sucked me into the black hole!!! Anyway, glad to see that you're still as productive as ever.
