Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Bali - AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G

Nikon professional photographer Scott A. Woodward and his student Cazmir Leenheer take part in a local ritual, Canang sari in Bali, Indonesia. Regarded as an important traditional art form across Bali, this ritual is performed at every sunrise to thank their Gods for peace given to the world. The simplest daily offering is made out of handwoven palm leaves with various colourful flowers, rice cookies, and incense.

With a 1.0x magnification and a minimum focus distance of approximately 16cm, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G allows Scott and Cazmir to capture and bring out the beauty of the offerings up-close. The maximum aperture of f/2.8 places focus on the delicate details of the flowers by isolating them against a gently blurred background.

If you require a versatile lens that allows you to capture a wide range of situations, from landscapes, to close-ups, and food photography, the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G is perfect for you.
