playing around with my new lens.



About an hour ago, my doorbell rang and angels descended as the mailman handed me a package that contained my new 50mm f/1.8 camera lens! 

I've been taking random pictures all around the house for the past hour or so. I'm excited to see how my photos improve once I get the hang of it. 


Our house is ridiculously messy at the moment so it was easy to find random objects to take pictures of. I suppose I should get off the couch and go clean or something. 

Happy September!

  3. You will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that lens. I do photography on the side and I use my 50mm about 90% of the time. It takes a little while to get used to using a fixed lens, but the picture quality is so superior! Have fun photographing! :)
