New lens...new possibilities

I have been having such a good time playing and learning how to use this new lens for my camera.  I just love the blurry backgrounds and the clarity of the pictures.  Here is just a little sampling of the ones I've taken since Christmas.  These are straight out of the camera and have not been altered in any way except for some cropping.








Until next time...

The lens is fun isn't it - I got a similar one in October & have been enjoying playing - no AF here either! I especially love the snowflake crystals

What beautiful photos! I love that last one of the snow (except, of course, that it's SNOW and I'm sick of snow haha).

I'd love to learn how to do that - guess I'd need a 'real' camera first. Maybe my daughter will let me use hers. What does that say, when your kids have better equipment than you do? Hmmm...

Your photos are always beautiful! I do love the sharp focus on an object with the blurry soft focus in the background.

Spectacular! Hubby has a whizzy lens that he refuses to let me play with. Boo.

Wow! These are great! My goal for this year is to be a better photographer. At this point I am just trying to learn to use the camera and all of it's setting. Kind of overwhelming, but kind of fun too. :)

Wow - you're doing superbly with that considering you've only had it for such a short period of time. It's a prime lens, right? I love the shallow DOF - it's something I strive for with dialling in aperture size.

I'm saving up for a new lens too - actually there are 2 I'd like, but I think the macro one has to take second place, much as I'd like it.

Keep up the brilliant work.
