We found a new toy. A fun, distorting, awesome, little toy…otherwise known as Nikon’s 14mm 2.8 lens. And we wreaked havoc with it in New York and New Jersey while visiting our friends last week. All of the following images were taken with this sweet little gem.
Moving right along to go see Lady Liberty (taken by Travis).
All we wanted was the typical group shot of us in front of the entire Statue of Liberty. But, when we got the point and shoot camera back from the fellow we asked to take the shot, it was us…and the Statue’s big toe. Huh. That’s when Travis realized that he could take the picture with him in it…us in it…the Statue of Liberty in it…and even the fellow who originally took the picture peeking over Travis’ shoulder. 14mm lens…GENIUS.
And finally, a few examples of what NOT to do with a 14mm lens. Like, don’t ever allow yourself or any part of yourself be framed closeup and at the side of this lens. A tiny bit of distortion may occur. Or a lot.
