Until now, we have been using the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens for the photos on Loops & Layers. Although we have no issues whatsoever with the outcome of the photos, the 50mm lens possesses a slightly longer focal length so in order to capture a good proportion of the background to the outfit, there has to be a greater distance between the subject (me!) and the photographer, which, in London, can sometimes prove to be a struggle without ending up in the middle of a busy road!
For this reason, we decided to experiment with the Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G lens for the photos in this post and after comparing this set of photos against the photos in my previous posts, I much prefer the end product captured with the 50mm lens. As the 50mm has a shallower depth of field, the increased blur created in the background of the image is less distracting, allowing for more emphasis on the outfit and its details in focus. The 16-35mm lens was originally purchased to use as a ‘holiday’ lens, mainly for landscape photography and it’s an amazing lens for that purpose but for outfit photos, we’ll be sticking to the 50mm until we discover an alternative (without breaking the bank!). Any suggestions are welcome. 🙂
Moving on, I have a very casual outfit on for today’s post. A cropped t-shirt and ripped jeggings! I can already imagine mixing and matching these two basic pieces with other pieces in the wardrobe to create new looks.
The combination of the delicate embroidery on the top and the rough distressed details on the jeggings gives the look a ‘streetstyle’ vibe for a day when you want to look like you tried, without trying. 😛
