Through a New Lens

Thanks to my debit card rewards program, I received a $100 Amazon gift card. I used this bad boy to purchase a lens I've been coveting for months now.

The Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF...this toy is totally worth the money and I haven't even learned how to use it properly, yet.

The post office delivered it today around 3pm. I took a few quick photos of Chloe and then I had to clean. I'm so happy with the few that I took! The nice thing about this lens is that I can take photos of Chloe indoors without having to use my flash! I'm not going to get into the logistics of it because this is not a photography blog and I am (OBVIOUSLY) not a photographer. But, here are my first few shots with the new lens.

Hooray for no flash! I can't wait to perfect my shots with this new lens. Now, if you'll excuse me...the baby is asleep and I want to spend some quality time with my hubby. AND, bastard blogger is making it difficult to upload photos. I don't have time for Blogger's nonsense right now. GRRRR.


  1. Cool! These are great photos...of course you have the best subject to photograph.

  2. Happy for you Kim. Chloe is so cute in the pictures you took. Have a great time learning to use your new toy.

  3. I.love.my.50mm. I got the thrifty 50 too for my canon. Love her!
    I use it to shoot 95% of the time. Indoor pictures are so much easier with it b/c you can open it up so much more than the kit lens! :)


Thanks for reading!
