    My new 50mm has been sitting for the most part unused since I got it a couple months ago. I had the chance to babysit my niece today so I decided to take my camera along. I feel like I finally achieved results that I've been hoping for. It seems that converting to jpeg and compressing for the web took away some sharpness though. A few of them are quite grainy, but I like them that way.

    Hmm...are they still too big? I saved high quality at 28 kbps...should I do that part differently?

    That is something I always struggle with when I'm photographing her or my nephew. How do you get detail in eyes that are naturally so dark?

    I had her opposite the front door, which was full glass. What do you use for a fill light? I need to learn how to use my flash off camera.

    Thanks everyone! She is such a stinker and spoiled rotten. She's happy as long as everyone is paying attention to her.
