My new lens has smaller maximum aperture than my wide-angle does, so it doesn’t take shots as well in low light – but the focal lengths are so much longer (55-210, vs. 16) that I can get a much shallower depth of field. In other words, I am having great fun with bokeh these days.
(Bokeh is the fancy word for a nice, artfully blurred background – great for creating perspective, in some circumstances, and for making the intended subject the center of attention.)
However, these were about the 3rd, 4th, and 5th photos I shot with my new lens…
(But still, look at that background!)
