While not technically the first shot I took with my D300, for all intents and purposes that’s what this is. After taking a couple of test shots the night that I got it, I was eager to take some “real” photos. The candy canes happened to be something that I had around.

It’s not perfect; I probably should have taken the plastic off to reduce the glare, and the only lighting available in my apartment are floor lamps. But it’s still quite colorful, and I particularly like the way the depth of field leaves the impression that the candy canes go on forever.

Shot with my Nikon D300, 105mm lens, and a tripod. 4″ at f/22.
