Sleeping dogs... OMG - I even took pictures of my house plants this past week and my Shirley Temple dolls... LOL

 

Sarah - here are a couple of samples I took within minutes of getting my new lens - the one of my hubby is without flash and ISO of 320 - the other is of the lens box and the ISO is 160 (both in AV mode). I did others in my kitchen and the ISO was 1600 and they too were very good!

 

Long as you bought the camera and all the stuff, you might as well get the nifty fifty. What I like thus far, is it is teaching me to get closer when taking the picture. So many of my pictures in the past I was just too far away, so I am concentrating right now on getting closer.

Robin, your photos are awesome! I love the clarify and the wonderfully shallow depth of field in the photo of your husband.

 

That does it! I've just got to order that lens!

 

Yeah, Caren, the 50mm f/1.4 would be fantastic - I've read the reviews and pros and cons of each - but it is way out of my price range, especially right now. One reviewer I read suggested getting the f/1.8, learning on it and when you are ready to stretch - then get the f/1.4.

Tia -

I just got my DSLR camera and got suggestions from other Scrapgirls members on books - I got two great ones - Magic Lantern Media, which includes two DVDs that are very easy to follow along with, plus a book with basic explanations. I also got "The Field Guide for Canon T1i" and it is very detailed and gives great explanations.

 

Another suggested book for understanding exposurer is what I am going for next! So much to learn, but so much fun learning it!

Sarah -

 

You do NEED to get the 50mm lens, I love it already! And it really completes the lens set for me. I know there are much better lens out there, but until I really know what I am doing and really know what I might need/want, I will stick with the three basic lens.

 

How are you doing with your new camera?

I've read this thread through, and I'm still confused. What exactly is a "Nifty Fifty"? Heard about it at convention, and would love to know more about it! If it makes a difference, I'm shooting with a Nikon D40.

Thanks,

Nancy

Nancy,

 

It is a Canon Lens, 50mm 1.8 and it is $99! It does great portraits, close-ups, etc. It has great background blur and for a cheap lens, it does a pretty good job!
