You ask – I answer: My go to everyday lens

My lovely follower Allison just asked me this question and I thought some more of you might be interested in the answer 🙂

I was wondering – what lens do you usually use for your photographs? I am looking for a good “everyday” lens, like an 18 – 55mm or something that I can use for photographing everyday life. Do you have a lens that you would recommend?


My absolute go to lens is my 24-75mm 2.8 Tamron. I just love that thing! It covers everything from wide angle to macro and with an apperture of 2.8 you get the most beautiful bokeh. Its also pin sharp and delivers great colors. I know, I know it’s not Canon but hey it’s super budget friendly and does the job pretty damn good! Most of my Portrait sessions are shot with this gem and so is most of my other work.

So again my favorite combination at the moment is my Canon 5d Mark I with the Tamron 24-75mm 2.8.

I hope that helped you out Allison. Feel free to ask me anything you like. 🙂
