my new lens
My father in law gifted us with a new lens a couple weeks ago - and holy amazing - I am in love.
You may recall (or you may not) that Tommy and I bought each other a wicked spiffy camera for Christmas last year. Our intent was to learn how to use it before Clara joined us... except it intimidated me. Too fancy. Too many buttons. Too bulky. Too hard to figure out. So I let Tommy play with it, and I kept using my little point and shoot.
BUT. This new lens makes me want to glue the camera to my hands. It makes the background blurry...just like I adore. I have a hard time capturing the foreground to be super crisp and sharp...but when I do...it's amazing :-) I am such a freaking photog genius. (Obviously, I jest...but I'm impressed with myself none the less.)
Any tips for this new photography kick of mine?
