More 50mm f/1.8 fun at a wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting alongside Blane Marable at Lauren & Chris’s wedding in Madison, Georgia. Madison’s a beautiful and historic town and this was a perfect place for a wedding. I have 2 lenses that I shoot with out of necessity: the kit lens for the Nikon D90 (18mm – 105mm) and the 50mm f/1.8 D prime lens which I purchased. I can’t recommend the 50mm lens enough because several of my ‘best’ shots were taken with this lens due to the shallow depth of focus (DOF) that it can achieve e.g. Exhibit 1.
I’m not doing any major ‘photo’ work this weekend, but I’m hoping to do more artistic photos. My website, Jane Ullah Photography is a work in progress so this should be a very exciting journey. πŸ˜› Cheers!

Last thing: here’s a sampling of my husband’s guitar riffs. The inline player is courtesy of the excellent HB audio player plugin by Colin a.k.a. lildude. (Update on 05/2011: Using PodPress BluBrry) Enjoy!

Wedding photography, part 1

So, part of what makes me tick is my interest in photography. I’ve recently become something of an unofficial student under the tutelage of Blane Marable Photography in Athens, GA. I shot a beautiful wedding with him a couple of weeks ago and here are some photo highlights of that wonderful ceremony. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

PS: I shot without the benefit of a flash, but hopefully I’ll save up for a Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash before the year runs out. If not, next year will be better.

Georgia’s official State Amphibian: Green Tree Frog

At midnight, Matt & I filmed this green tree frog outside our apartment with my Nikon D90 and the 50mm f/1.8 lens. It turned out well my opinion and I’ll shoot more videos using this lens. We weren’t sure what the type of frogΒ  it was, but Matt had a good guess. His aunt cleared up the mystery via Facebook! Enjoy this beautiful frog! πŸ™‚
