New Lens!

I recently bought the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens, and finally, after a grueling wait for it to come in the mail, I got it! This photo is from just my first little attempt with it around the yard… The DOF is wonderfully shallow…

  1. Have fun with your new glass !!! I love it b/c it’s so lightweight. If you can use EF-S lenses and ever want a good macro – save your pennies for the 60 mm EF-S macro. It takes great macro pix as well as being a good all purpose. BTW – great photo!!

  2. Beautiful photo and love the colours! The 50mm is my absolute favorite! When I first got it, I was a little bit too “shallow depth of field happy” and only a sliver of the image would be in focus. Have fun!

  3. It looks great! And Portrait style always is good for a change. I have Canon’s 50 mm macro, and as it turns out, it’s the sharpest lens I have! I always love Canon’s background blur effects… LOL! You’re like me… A big kid with a toy…

  4. I absolutely love my 50 mm lens. You are right about the DOF – it has a learning curve but so much fun. I am learning that I can create some wonderful moods with just the right f-stop. Enjoy!
