Sorry for all of the food posts guys, memorial day weekend is a pretty big food holiday for us so even though we spent it with just the two of us we still grilled out, ate fresh produce + soaked up the sun. The caprice salad has me drooling like a begging Katie right now.
On Tuesday of this week I got a new lens delivered from Amazon, finally. Not because of shipping, I got the 6-8 day standard and got it in two days!! It's because I have had the money to order this particular lens since Christmas, but I am a researcher. Which is a huuuuge problem in the world of photography equipment. It is also a huge drain on your wallet so keep in mind here we are talking my first non-kit lens for a girl in her early broke 20s. Anyways, the reviews are all contradictory & understandably so because it all depends on your personal style.
Do you need a zoom lens or can you go prime? Shoot in low light often? How often will my subjects be running? All questions I wasn't ready to answer yet because I dont't know them. So I went with the one thing I did know - soft + light and went with a low aperture in my price range that was 50mm like my kit lens. I didnt realize how much I would miss my zoom, but I am having a blast really having to focus on my composition + focus even more than I did before. All of the shots this week are with my new lens- duh. I cant put it down. BONUS: I want to really learn something new, so most were shot wide open, with multiple shots required to get it right.
I really like how this weeks images turned out + I am already thinking of which lens I should start saving for next. suggestions?
