If you ask me, few things can spark our creativity as limited resources can. Photographer from Kerala, India Mithun M Das’ gives us a perfect example of this. He took some really cool photos of 1970 Dodge Charger. But the trick is that they were all taken in his living room, with a toy car and scenes made from stuff he could find around him.
I am in no way a professional photographer: my gear includes a Nikon D5200 body, with the Nikkor 18-55mm VR II kit lens, the Nikkor 55-300mm VR zoom lens, and the latest addition, the Nikkor 50mm 1.4G prime lens. My favorite combo is still the Nikon D5200 body + Nikkor 18-55mm VR II – no offense to the other lenses. The reason why I decided to write this article is because I have seen a lot of newbies considering the kit lens as just a piece of glass with no merits at all. That is not entirely true – it’s one of the best lenses to start with, and with the right technique you can achieve a lot with the so-called kit lens!
