    I finally got a different lens other than the kit lens my rebel came with woohoo.... I am a photographer on a budget so the lens I got was a whopping $100 plus the $36 to overnight it to me (I wanted to play with it asap lol).... the lens I bought is below:

    Basically I needed to improve the look of my outdoor portraits... I wasn't getting the background softening and separation from the subject that I wanted... this lens has done exactly what I wanted it to do so I can honestly say that for $136 I'm more than pleased with my purchase :)

    My images are also much sharper and clearer than with my kit lens and my DOF is remarkable for the price I paid.

    Thank you!! About the skin, I know right? It's crazy... I used to have to spot heal quite a bit with my kit lens but this lens is pretty amazing, it makes the skin creamy, sharpens what needs sharpened, and blurs the background nicely.. I am still in shock on the price I paid...

    I am using a rebel xsi 450d and the link to the lens is in my first post :)

    Nice pictures! Love the colors and dof! I remember the excitement of 1.8 when I got mine. Where you the chick that got criticized for putting to much make up on your daughter back in the day or is that just my imagination?

    You are correct, I think we got that cleared up tho when I posted the shot of her before bedtime... we do a dab of mascara and some chapstick/lipgloss :)
