new lens

Last week we had an unfortunate incident. The lens that came with our camera stopped working.  Canon, to their credit accepted out lens and fixed it without cost to us.  So... nice for us.  In the meantime, we had heard a lot about a smaller, fixed lens (portrait lens) that was designed more for close up, low light shots.  We pulled the trigger and are just experimenting now with it.  So far, the results are pretty fun.  We don't for a second pretend to know what we're doing, but we're enjoying our baby steps into more complex photography.

We call this series... exploration/frustration with food.






Note - the fun thing about these shots is that they were all taken indoors, with no flash.  Natural lighting makes for such nice shots.   The new lens made this effect possible.

Ahh!! Those pictures look soooo good! I am excited to experiment with my camera. Too bad it stresses me out so bad! I love the new picture on the top of the blog! It is so good! Who took it? That's it, I am flying out for a tutorial on the camera.

PS Henry and George have the same darling pj's
