I got a new toy!! I'm so excited ;-D

Here is my early Birthday and Christmas present! Thanks Dad, grandma, grandpa and myself! Ha, yes, I just thanked myself for chipping in.

New Toy

I'm still playing with it. I'm having a hard time focusing when using the low f stop (which creates that fabulous bokeh / nice shallow DOF) I just need to get used to the lens a little.... and I'm pretty sure I need glasses too....I'll worry about that another day though!

I love this lens and that I'll be able to take more low light photos! I hope to test it out tomorrow some more. Here's a few shots I took after grabbing it out of the box:





  1. Sweet! You're going to take it caching, I take it? ;)

  2. And it even takes pictures of itself! Amazing! ;)

  3. SO COOL! Can't wait to see your work!

    You even made the mousetrap look chic.

  4. Those are beautiful! Congrats on the new lens. I treated myself to a Nikon 50mm f 1.4 this summer. It was hard to get used to the manual focus, but it's so worth it. And, hey, the practice time is fun!

  5. @amy- yep probably!

    @ashlei- haha!

    @Iris Took- thanks! and I'm sure you'll see plenty!

    @Caryn- Glad to hear it does take some time to get used to!

  6. wow!! awesome gift!! nothing like something NEW to play with...and be creative with!!

    have fun!! :) merry christmas!

  7. we want to buy a nice camera soon...i will need some advice on what to get since you are miss picture taker of amazing pictures!! :)
