Testing the Nikon Nikkor 85mm 1.8

Today I've been playing around with the Nikon Nikkor 85mm f/1.8. My new lens is so much fun! Here are a few of the shots I've taken:

This is a straight out of camera shot of my cat Renegade. While he's not a great poser (he tends to glare at the camera), this was a great way to test the blacks and whites. If I did anything in photoshop, I would try to change his nose to reflect a more pink color. That way he wouldn't look like a ghost cat!

And then there's the pretty girl Ally. She has the most gorgeous eyes. I pumped them up a bit in photoshop and boosted the contrast. I love the way her fur becomes creamy in the bokeh of the image. I love being able to shoot at f.2.8! She really is one of the most beautiful cats ever. 

Mmmm Coffee!

So then I tried to take an image of my morning coffee. To my surprise I was able to capture some of the smoke rising from the travel mug. Peet's Coffee is delicious! My husband used to work for them. We love our travel mugs. 

 

All in all, I love this lens so far. I can't wait to start using it in portraits and other photo shoots.
