new lens


I got a new lens! Please excuse this photo of me with no makeup and pool-day hair, but this is one of the only ones I have that shows off the new lens. It has a lower f-stop number, so that makes for blurrier backgrounds. You know what this means... get ready for more outfit posts.

Oh, since I wan't really in the business to spend a fortune on my camera (I was still working with the kit lens!), I went with the least expensive upgrade I could. It's the Canon 50mm 1.8 Lens (I was deciding between that and the 1.4, but after many comparison reviews, I read that the 1.4 probably isn't worth the $275 price difference. Not to say I wouldn't love to have it!). This one seems to be worth every penny so far. If you're in the market for an inexpensive lens, check it out. It's great for landscapes, too.

  1. I just bought a 50mm lens last week! I was in Naples, FL earlier in the week so it was great to take it and test it out in a fun new place!

  6. I just bought the same lens a few weeks ago, and I've been loving it. Definitely worth the $125 price tag.

  7. My 50 mm is the cheapest but BEST purchase I have ever made with my camera. The difference in the photos of people with this lens is incredible!
