Photography and Thoughts
One of the most exciting little pleasures in life is getting a new toy. In this case I’m talking about a new camera lens. A wide angle lens to be more specific.
I’ve previously mentioned I like taking landscape shots, and I have seen some impressive scenes that make you feel like you are a dot standing among the mountain tops looking at the looming volcano and the scene is spread before you…et cetera. Now I’m not planning on climbing any mountains soon but I think I could get some cool shots with a wideangle. I’m not talking fisheye just to clarify. So the question is… which one shall i get? Since this is my first time buying a lens on it’s own I’m wondering:
1) If I should stick to camera shops, or would a department store with less overwhelming choice have anything worth considering.
2) Are second-hand lenses ever a safe choice.
3) Is there a brilliant camera shop that is a secret you can share with me (!)
