Pro’s Killer kit #01 Nikon 50mm f/1.4G

NPhoto - - The Photo Apprentice -

Steve says… One of my favourite lenses. It’s cheap for a lens this fast (£279, $429), it’s light and it de­liv­ers won­der­ful shal­low depth of field ef­fects. You can use it in­doors and out, and it’s not just about the great bokeh you get when you use it wide open, it’s the dis­ci­pline it brings. You need to move in and around your sub­ject to find the best an­gles – you see much more than if you just stand in one place and use a zoom. The wide max­i­mum aper­ture makes it great for in­door avail­able light por­traits, too.
