One of my personal challenges in November was to get out and shoot with a fixed focal length lens or prime lens, yes they are the same just different descriptive words. After a poll on Instagram the chose for the month was the Sony 55mm F/1.8 lens and so now I had to determine how I wanted to challenge myself as I knew I would fail if I said I had to take a picture a day so I decided on I had to post an image a day but had to have been taken in the month of November.
So far I have been pretty solid about the 1 post per day with an image that was captured with the 55mm lens. This started the hashtag of #IrishTexanPrimeOnly on Instagram and with a few extra posts on a few days I am at 28 posts in 26 days so think that is pretty excellent. Looking back through the overall numbers so far in November with 4 days remaining in the month, 10 photo outings, 2 states, 1153 images with the 55mm (I usually shoot bracketed so higher numbers as each shot is usually 3 images but not all used), Rain, Sleet and Snow. It was a fun month and a fun challenge.
Here are some of the highlights from the month (Top 5 with the most likes on Instagram).
Wake Up Early. Drink Coffee. Never stop chasing the light and always get out there and shoot.
