Model Mayhem Labuan Lalang

Another black and white image for my blog new theme. This one was taken with my new AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens. I love the lens. Its sharp, fast, and very light. The only drawback is it won’t autofocus on my camera body.

My Nikon D5000 doesn’t have the built in motor required to turn the focusing screw in this lens. So all my picture with this lens is manually focused. Its not that hard though, theres a built in electronic rangefinder that help you focus. The focus ring also rotate much more longer than my AF-S lenses so getting a precise focus in manual mode is much more easier.

Oh, the portrait model? He was the parking officer in Labuan Lalang, the port to Menjangan. I had a light chat with him while waiting for my friends to sort out out transport.
