Everyday Lenses

Nikon 50mm 1.8

Nikon 50mm 1.8

Ditch the kit lens that your camera came with. You want to purchase a high-quality lens. This lens will instantly change the look of your photos, help you create sharper images, as well as give you the blurry background so many photographers want. I highly recommend starting with a solid prime lens.


Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8

If you are looking for an everyday, all around, go-to zoom lens, look no further. The 28-70mm is the lens you have been looking for as it can do wide shoots at 28mm and zoom in to 70mm. This is the lens I grab if I’m not sure what I’ll be shooting for the day. You can’t go wrong with this lens.

Upgraded Lenses

Sigma 50mm f1.4

The 50mm f/1.4 is the BEST starter lens for a photographer. However, it’s a bit pricey.

Sigma 35mm 1.4

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art

If you have a Nikon camera another option is the 35mm f/1.8. This camera is ideal if you shoot mainly indoors in tight places. I have a love/hate relationship with this lens. I will put it on my camera and love it for a few days and then switch back to my 50mm and love the images so much more.

Sigma Art 85mm

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art

When it comes to take portraits look no further than the 85mm f/1.8. This lens creates the most beautiful tack sharp images with amazing blurry backgrounds. If you want your subject to pop, get your hands on an 85mm.
