50mm f/1.8 Lens

For Christmas, I got a new lens! As well as some other awesome stuff, but the lens is the focal point of this post.

I'm generally a beginner photographer, but over the past few weeks I've been taking hundreds of pictures, I got a new flash (the SB-700) and have been playing with that. I want to try getting the flash off the camera, and there's tons of little accessories I don't own yet that will help.

Here is a sample picture of what I've been able to do with the f/1.8 lens. It's pretty awesome so far! That's my nephews, with Ethan in the foreground and Caden in the background, both playing their new Nintendo 3DS's that they got for Christmas :)


My other favorite photo with the new lens, Amanda and Beaker, enjoying the Snoogle that I got for Amanda for Christmas!

Photographer's Blessing

May your aperture be filled with light, but not too much!

Another Baby Appointment

Amanda and I had to go back to the hospital for more ultrasound pictures, since the baby wasn't cooperating when we tried to get pictures of the heart!  So we saw another light show, and the baby headbanging. It's got some Nirvana or something in there. Rock on baby.


The baby is growing!

Baby at 20 Weeks

The baby is 10 oz and about the length of a banana! We aren't finding out the sex so I don't want to say "He/She" so I'll just refer to the baby as "the baby".
