Photo of the week
Buying a new lens, especially when starting out, can be a complicated and time consuming procedure. There are a lot of lenses out there, with a lot of hype surrounding them. Luckily I stumbled across Ron Martinsen’s blog via Google Plus. He offers a good explanation and guide to the lenses that are considered essential. Ron Martinsen’s Photography Blog: Which lens should I buy?
While there, check out the section called “Read This First” which has even more guides and educational posts. They are located about a third of the way down. Ron also has discounts on popular photography kit if you are in the market for something new.
I only wish I had found his blog a week earlier so I could have purchased my 16-35mm F2.8 via one of his links (pictured below) through which he receives a small fee to keep his blog going. Oh well next time I will go through his site to give him support.
