The first photo I took from this guy was a convenience shot and didn’t made it through my selection procedure. I found a more impressive perspective when I leaned on the fence (what had the additional advantage of some extra support) and shoot this photo nearly on an eye level with this sweet donkey.
Again I used the Canon 50mm 1.8 aka Plastic Fantastic lens on my Rebel. This lens is a light weight, cheap with a price around the $100,- and fantastic to start shooting with. Even in situations where you can’t use a flash.
