I also picked up a few lenses with my order and I have to say that this one is my FAVORITE! It's only $90 and you can buy it at this link. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/12142-USA/Canon_2514A002_Normal_EF_50mm_f_1_8.html(I'm too lazy tonight to link the words all fancy! LOL!) I was enabled to buy it by reading a post on Willow Traders about it. It's not a general use lens, but if you love those close-up portrait photos of people with the blurry backgrounds, this is the lens you should try! ;)
Here IS a shot I took of Owen playing on the computer using this lens. Cool, eh?! Can't wait to learn more about what I can do with this camera! So fun!
Well, if you're going to get a new camera, . . . you need a new camera bag to carry your new toy in, right?! This is the one I wanted, but I wasn't willing to fork out the money for it. :) It's soooo cute, though. If you want to see where you can buy this $170 camera bag, click on this link. http://www.jill-e.com/sml_bone_cb.html
But you can get the brown one for cheaper and see detailed pictures of it at the Walmart site.
Okay, so that's a great way to begin the week, right? :) Well . . . then on Tuesday, I found out that I made the Gettin' Sketchy team. WOOHOOOO! I am really lovin' sketches lately!
