Let me start by saying that by the time I finish writing this post there will be at least 7 new photo editing apps for the iPhone that will have everyone and their Chinese grandmother believing they are a professional photographer. This is great news for those that don’t have the budget to purchase cameras, lenses, and other equipment but it’s important to remember that no matter how many apps come out with new VSCO filters they will never allow your phone’s camera to have unique and memorable compositions.
If you’ve ever had the feeling after taking a picture with your phone or camera that it just doesn’t look like what you’re seeing with your eyes then this Tokina 11-16 mm lens will completely blow you mind.
In order to stand out as a photographer or as a brand it’s important to have a style that sets you apart. I’ve shot on many cameras with many lenses and found that the ONLY piece of equipment that has been getting me pictures that no one else has is the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens for my Nikon D7100.
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Camera Lens
When I am on the road doing travel photography this is the only lens I take out of my bag. Structures, cathedrals, bridges, fall trees, city streets, and everything else you’re seeing on the road is captured by this lens in a way that you and your audience will never forget.
All I did was look through the viewfinder, find a composition I liked, and snapped the picture. Then a quick run through some light editing in Lightroom 5 and these pictures are ready for print.
Have a look on Amazon and read the reviews from all different kinds of people with different skill levels.
