All posts for the month February, 2014

I picked up new lens. Its a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 wide angle lens. I mainly wanted this for landscape type photos and night sky shots. The upside to the lens that it is half the price of the Canon EF-S 16-22mm, and 1/8th the price of the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM. Downside, its manual focus, but its a rather piddly downside as most of what I will be shooting with the lens will be at infinity anyway… with a 14mm lens past about 13 feet everything is in focus. 

I played around some and still working on finding where infinity is with the different F stops since the mark for infinity on the lens is, well, shit and way wrong. So here are two shots I took this morning after spending an entire evening messing around with the lens. Of all the pictures I took in the last 12hrs, these two I like best. Couple more days I think I will have this thing figured out and dialed in.
