Okay, I’m having waaay too much fun with my new 55mm lens. I’ve been working today to compose “in camera” without any cropping — using the constraints of the aspect ratio and the narrow depth of field to define my subject. I’m really enjoying this process. It feels much more intimate — like I have to get closer to my subject and be more deliberate about what I’m framing. It feel less “accidental”, allowing the lens to create the magic.
