Project365 – Day 41

Project365-41

So I got my new Nikon 50mm f1.8G in the post, my first ever prime lens!

Naturally I wanted to play around straight away and get some of those really cool shots with nice blurry backgrounds (bokeh). For this picture I set my camera to Aperture Mode (A mode on my Nikon D5000) and set it aperture to f1.8 (obviously!). This is a little ornament that sits on our mantle piece above the fire. The candle was already burning away in the background so I didn’t have to do much other than press the release button. What a lovely effect!
