    50mm 1.8 I love it! Here is the first pic I took with it.
    Please ignore my name on it. :)

    Congrats. Working with a shallow DOF and good glass, sure is a treat, isn't it?

    Yeah! Seems like I waited forever to have it. My mom bought it for me, there was a catch though. I HATE weddings and she said she would only buy it for me if I would shoot her friend's daughter's wedding. They don't have money for one so I'm it. Ugh! LOL I like doing favors though and it's worth it for the lens alone! :)

    I really like this shot. I love my 50/1.8 also. It gets used now more than any of my other lenses.

    Congratulations!
    I am in love with my 50mm 1.8 lens, too!
    At first I still stuck more to the lens I was used to but now things are shifting more and more towards the prime lens. The results look strikingly different, too.
    Good for you to be having a mom who "forces" the lens "upon you" :D!

    Yeah, ha. It was nice for her to get it for me and I must admit that now that I have it I actually want to do the wedding because I need things to take pictures of with my new lens. :)

    Hey,

    You are going to end up using this lens more then any other I can almost guarantee it. It is my absolute favorite.

    And the photo you took is really good too.

    When you are outside with good light, try to set your apature around 5 and you will still get a very nice dof.

    No, no not at all. I love it! I actually didn't post anywhere too much because my uncle died and I was too sad. :( But photography being like therapy to me (lol) I did go shoot a 'trash the dress' but I wasn't sure about the content being appropriate for ILP. ;)
