Best Nikon Lenses For Landscape Photography - What are the best Nikon lenses for landscape photography? I am a self taught professional photographer who specializes in street, landscape, lifestyle, and marketing photography.
I was not able to find the parts needed to do so but you may wan to check out the DK-19 rubber eye cup, it looks to be a little smaller than the DK-22 if thats what your looking for. No super glue needed… You need to sandwich the pieces and when you screw in down they will be held in place.
Yes, you missed the Nikon FM eyepiece FM2 that screws the other two pieces together… There is a link to it in the post above. Thanks John, I got the FM2 in the mail and the key to getting it all together, is he metal grooved band that came with the DK19.
Sort of, it will fold towards the body and out of your way but it wont fold down or to the side.

If there’s possibly one thing that makes a photo stand out as being ‘pro’-like, its the fact that the subject of the photo  – whether this be a person, a dog, a football or whatever – is in focus, whilst the background is a blur.
It really comes down to the use of aperture, focal length and focus distance – all of which may sound pretty technical if you’re new to photography, but it’s really not complicated.
By choosing a large aperture you obtain a shallow ‘depth of field’, hence the blurred background.
The technical reason why a large aperture results in a shallow depth of field is, well, very technical – but you can think of it this way, with a cake-decorating analogy: When you have a large aperture, it means you have a large lens opening – this is like dumping a load of icing on top of a cake using your hands, just throwing it on. On the other hand, choosing a small aperture means you have a small lens opening – this is like using a fine pipette to apply your icing to the cake. Obviously, this guide is about getting a blurry background, so we’ll be wanting low f-numbers please…!


In the two examples below, I used the exact same camera and exposure settings, but with two different focal lengths – the left photo taken with a 55mm focal length, the right with a longer 109mm. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little guide, and that it helps you get those lovely blurry backgrounds.
Ooh, and seeing as you made it right to the bottom, perhaps you’d like to follow me on twitter or join us on Facebook, too? Great site – thanks for the easy to understand tips which are way confusing in the manuel. I just bought a D5000 and after searching for numerous tutorials, I have finally found a website I understand =) Thank You!
I know, thanks to this article that I can get a nice blurry background with a longer focal lenght. I just wanted to say thank you for all the tips you have given namely taking sharp pics in low light; 15 great pics with a cannon 550d and how to get a blurry background. Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Louise, it really means a lot to hear that you’ve found my writings useful!
I am also very new to dslr photography (yesterday i spent a very large sum of money on the canon 600D and I am feeling very intimidated!! I am a beginner however I am hoping to grow into a camera and get those always longed for professional looking shots! After reading this one and your punchline ‘If you want more Focus, you want more F-numbers’, I hope, I will not forget these basics, excellent article with great sense of humour, Thanks!!! Hello, this series of articles are the most simpler I have came across since my research and actual experience on the SLR.
Hi All, Its really nice to find something relevant in simple language to understand the complexity of photography.
The best part is that you click like a master and use a language like a learner so its very easy for us novices to understand. The D5100 offers special effects that can be selected and applied with both shooting of still images .
After I posted my last article on “Best Nikon Lenses for Wedding Photography“, I have been getting many . This ‘blurred background’ is probably the major difference between pro-quality photos and most people’s holiday snaps – it really is that effective. Aperture is simply talking about how much light enters your camera, focal length just means how long your lens is, and focus distance just means how near you are to the object you’re focusing on.


Objects in the foreground – in front of the subject, between the subject and the camera – would also be blurred. If you’re interested, all of these photos were taken with a Canon 500D (known as the T1i in America) which is available from Amazon UK and US. My first order of business is to take photographs of my lovely mother outside while the weather is cloudy.
I think my main tips would be to use a long focal length (around 50mm +, even trying some at 200mm). I have Nikon D90 and love experimenting with it…look forward to reading more of your posts on photography tips! I have been researching the best cameras for my needs for well over a week, and had decided on the Nikon d5100, however when I picked up both cameras I just felt more comfortable with the canon 600d.
My main reason for purchasing a dslr is because I have a 14 month old baby girl and I want to take some beautiful pics to treasure forever, namely these lovely blurry background shots… Have I made the right choice?
I have followed everything on your tutorial (and a few others) and can’t seem to get the blurry effect. I’ll go into more depth on how controlling all of these factors means you can get that blurred background look below – and though this is probably easier to achieve if you have a DSLR camera, if your compact has the ability to manually choose the aperture and focal length, then it will apply to you too. These longer focal lengths achieve a more flattering look for portraits generally, and help blur the background. And also after reading your extremely useful tips above, I have been trying to get that blurry effect, I think I need to invest in another lense. Do you know if there is a piece that will fit, which will accommodate a rubber circular eyecup? I want to be able to use live view for video when i switch back and forth from stills shooting. Using the lens at the 55m part, using the widest aperture you can, standing as close to your subject as you can, and having as much distance between the subject and the background as possible, will all help, though. Thanks for your comment, and feel free to join us on facebook and post a few pics on our wall!
