More Lens Fun

Well the amateur in me couldn't wait to test out my second new lens!

The zoom lens was a used one I found really cheap locally, and this one is a prime lens. My first biggie purchase to add to my camera package! It actually is a result of a giftcard given to me by my class this year - pretty awesome, huh?

This lens will focus on one part of the image and allows the rest to fade into the background, giving it that blurry look. I know that's hardly a technical term, but it's what makes sense to me. Something about a short depth of field, I think. Eh?

It's going to take some practice, but so far, I like what I see.

Wendy's clan was hanging out today so I used them as my guinea pigs. They stand still so much better than two year olds!

Are you tired of seeing my holiday ornaments yet?

The weather could have helped by pouring a little more daylight in the windows, but we do live in Ohio. I managed to get a few good ones of Wendy's kiddos, but after nap, these two weren't really up for it. More pics to come in the next two weeks, I'm sure. With my time off, I have to have something to do, right?
