Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Mongolia – AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G

Ulaanbaatar is the capital and largest city of Mongolia. To understand the thriving youth culture in Ulaanbaatar, Nikon professional photographer Scott A. Woodward and photography enthusiast Chantal Windley met up with a few young Mongolian skateboarders.

Using the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G, Scott and Chantal photographed a series of portraits. Featuring a maximum aperture of f/1.8, this lens allowed them to capture their subjects with a beautiful shallow depth of field, which helped to bring out the true personality in each photo. As a medium telephoto prime lens, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G is not just great for shooting portraits, but can also be used in a wide range of situations such as weddings, concerts and more.

To photograph great portraits, it is always best to focus on your subject’s eye. This creates a feeling of intimacy with the viewer, while also allowing you to capture the subtle facial features of your subject.

Whether you are shooting indoors or outdoors, the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G is ready to perform.
