There are times when one just must “play”. “Playing” can take the shape of many forms. In my case, and precisely now, it is playing with camera lenses using a constant light source. And right now, it is the light coming through the window in the kitchen. Full sun today; Bright; Intense; Hot. So let’s take just one subject: A piece of Crab Strudel. Let’s look at the different way different lenses look at the subject. Personally, I like #3 best. Which one do you like?

(1) 18-55mm lens (Standard camera lens); 55mm, 1/3 sec, F/5.3. Natural light.

(2) 60mm Fixed; 1/125; F/4; Natural light.

(3) 60mm Fixed lens; 1/50 sec; F/3.2; Natural light.
