It's here! It's here!

After waiting and waiting, I finally received my new lens. I have to say, this is a most awesome lens. It's a f 1.4 50mm lens and I have been wanting one for some time now. Now, I can die with a smile on my face. Not really. I would also need to win the lottery, buy a big huge house and write four best selling novels first.
Anyway, I love it and I have been practising with it ever since I got it.

Here are some pics I took:


Normally, I would use my telephoto lens for this effect and have to stand about a mile away. But, not anymore.



Love the background blur without any effort.

I love the fact that you don't need flash to use it indoors, which will help me with photo shoots.


Emily was about done with having me stick the camera in her face, so I moved on to other subjects.

Like Zach.



He too, eventually told me that I gotta go, so I moved on...


Even Barbie's toilet seat made a cool photo...

Ok, maybe I was running out of subjects after awhile.
