  1. I was referred to your blog and I am wondering if you can recommend a digital camera that would be a good affordable starter for a beginner digital user. I am interested in food and nature photography.
    Thank you.

  2. Hey L, a question for you.

    Anyways, I have been using a 50mm 1.8 (cheap, less than $100) and I also have a 60mm 2.8 macro. I saw that you use the 50mm 1.4.

    Do you think there would be a huge difference between the 1.4 and the 1.8? I’m doing food shots only.


  3. Hi Jaden,

    The 1.4 is a great lens, but I’m not sure it’s all that critical. The bokeh is a bit better, and it is a bit sharper than the 1.8. But, if you’ve been fairly happy with the 1.8, I’d say stick with it. Maybe look at or save up for the 100mm 2.8 macro? I find that one really great for food photography.
