Today we head back to downtown Naples. A few minutes after I shot the photo of the old man playing his unique violin, I was presented with this blue/purple hour view of the monstrous Mount Vesuvius in the background and a plethora of sailboats in the foreground. Since I only had my 85mm f/1.8 lens with me at the time, I needed to get creative with all of my shots.
By the way, this is a great little exercise to get you thinking creatively and seeing things in a unique light again. It might be just what you need to get out of that photo slump and generate some interesting compositions. Choose one fixed focal length lens (a non-zoom lens) and shoot strictly with that lens for a whole day, weekend, or week. You will be surprised at how much it will challenge you to think outside the box and some of the creative shots you will come up with. For the Nikon DX cameras, you can’t beat the $199 35mm f/1.8 for a low price, quality, auto-focus lens. Focal lengths I use with my D800 include 50mm, 85mm, and 105mm. Ask below if you have any questions!
