Photography Protip #1

I love photography. A few days ago I was talking to friend of the lab Tim Hall (aka @oraclebase) and he was telling me how frustrating was to go home after a trip and see some of the generic/boring pictures he took.

My advice was to focus on details.

AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D. ISO 200, 0EV, F/7.1, 1/200

Most of my favorites pictures come from my 50mm f/1.8 lens. This lens forces me to focus on details since its fixed and cannot zoom in or out. Also I have been using my iPhone camera to capture details. There are some people that are taking the smartphone cameras to the next level and using them as primary cameras.

Hit the comments if you happen to be a geek photographer too 🙂


  1. Yeah, sometimes when I want to travel light all I bring is the 50mm. There are times when I want to kick myself for not bringing my zoom lens, but it forces me to be creative 🙂
