You can never forget your first lens, it holds a special place in your photographic journey. For many, it may have been a point and shoot camera while for others, it may be have been the kit lens that came with your first camera. Starting as a bird and wildlife photographer, my passion for photography grew which expanded my horizons into macro, landscape and greater distance telephoto lenses.

I took this picture with natural lighting on my Nikon D70 with a 50mm prime lense while using a tripod. I liked the pattern and colors in the rack, as well as the fact that not every slot had a bottle in it. <br>Wine.jpg by Jimmy Revelino on Light Stalking
Hello everyone. I started now trying to capture little insects, bees and fly’s in these vacations when I was on a country side villa, this interest developed because I tried before to take some macro photos, but I always had the problem of the auto focus, because it does never focus where I want it […]
