Aly Dawn 365 | January 2017

This post contains affiliate links.  Thank you in advance for supporting Aly Dawn Photography!

Almost all of the images this month were taken with my trusty Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens. It’s my go to lens at the moment, so be sure to check it out. It’s also one of the cheapest lens out there, just saying. 😉

A few of the images this month were freelensed with my other Nikon 50mm 1.8D lens (this is the older version. On cropped cameras, it does not auto focus. But you can use it to freelens!). This one is even cheaper than the one stated above!

And a select few were taken with my macro lens Nikon 105mm 2.8D AF. This is also the older version and I am pretty sure you can’t buy them anymore. The old version is superb, so I can only image what the new version with vibration reduction is! Here’s the newer version: Nikon 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Vibration Reduction. I’ve heard that vibration reduction is SUPER helpful for macro photography.

If you’re not already, be sure to follow me on Instagram where I try to post daily.

Here are some favorites from January that have NOT been included in my 365 project. If interested, here are the links: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, & Week 4.

I am a photographer, a wife, a sister, and now a momma to be. I strive to capture the beauty in ordinary things. I love to photograph people, places, and things that I love and cherish. I am a lover of natural light, macro, lifestyle, and dark and moody images. I am a die hard Nikon fan, I love yellow starbursts, I am a pianist, and I am obsessed with photography, maybe a little too much!
