I’ve been working on shooting with a longer lens, which is a completely different style than what I’m used to. I’ve come to realize I tend to enjoy getting close with my subjects and shooting them from unorthodox angles. My favorite photos all tend to be from the same distance: up close and personal. Using the Nikkor 80-200mm gives me a different perspective. It makes those faraway shots so much more attainable!

Here are some shots from the past weeks assignments:
