Project 52 Week 10: Be Still

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge

My kids cannot 'be still', but these apples were pretty good at it.  I also wanted to test out my new lens (Nikon 85mm f/1.4) on some not so squirmy subjects.  I still need to practice with it a lot more, but so far I'm loving it!

85mm, f/2.2, ISO 250, 1/40


  1. Cool photo! Apples are much more still than kids for sure.

  2. Beautiful! I took some apple shots myself this week fro a different challenge - but I like your's much better:)

  3. Yes, apples are so much better at listening, ha! This turned out great, that is one of the next lenses that I'm wanting too- your liking it?

    1. The lens is great. I am using it on a D7000 and think it would be even better on a full frame. I am having to get used to how far back I need to be! I am used to shooting with a 50mm. The bokeh is really nice and I can really see a difference between the 50 (f/1.8) and this lens.

  4. Great job! I did my best to get shots of my kids being still this week, but it was tough!
