Adding to the Thrifty Fifty Challenge
Yesterday morning I worked on creating some more images for the Thrifty Fifty Challenge. The challenge is to create an uncropped image of a sparrow sized bird with minimal processing photographed with a 50mm lens or wider preferably a thrifty fifty. When Canon introduced the 50mm f1.8 lens photographers called it the "Thrifty Fifty", other names used were the "Nifty Fifty and the "Plastic Fantastic". This is the lens I used yesterday to photograph some Chestnut Backed Chickadee at a set up I created in the backyard. It's fun to challenge myself to photograph small birds from such a small distance. Here are a couple of images photographed with the Thrifty Fifty from yesterday.God's blessings upon your day, chris Both images were created with a Canon 7D MkII camera and a Canon 50mm F 1.8 lens. #TeamCanon I'm looking forward to seeing some other photographers adding to the Thrifty Fifty Challenge of FB.
