    I got enough money through orders to order it 2 nights ago, never thought it would show up today. imagine my shock when it did! andorama rocks my socks.

    I did some prom pics for my sons aunt and her friend. They were getting ready and I couldn't believe how fast this lens was! wow. It just sucks up any light there is. Does anyone else think the rebel is noisy as hell though at iso 800?? I mean, I thought it would handle it better than it does (imo)

    Anyway, these are the 5 favorites (of mine). I won't bore you with the regular posey posey stuff. Comments? Critisisms? Things to do better next time?

    I have a few of this one, but chose this one to show. I like the deep shadowed siloutte better than the properly exposed ones.

    Congrats on the new lens.

    I think she is absolutely gorgeous in #2. If there is any of the original left, I think if there was a bit more of her head on top and slide her to camera right to get off center.

    Also, I wish you had used an aperture of f/11 on #5. :lol:

    Good shots all together.

    I think they turned out awesome, Kelly! Very nice work! I'm ordering this lens next month. I can't wait to play with it! My fave of this set is #1. You caught really nice moments. I'd really like to see your posed shots too, if you don't mind sharing.

    Sure!

    I believe I did. I was excited to get the lens and the lighting was so low inside, so I think I shot them all at 1.8.

    The 50 1.8 is soft at f/1.8 Stop it down though and it's very sharp. Try shooting at f/5.6 next time...2.8 even if you want a shallower DOF.

    This was shot at f/5.6 with the 50 1.8

    Yea, there is! My composition isn't nearly as good with a prime lens. I tend to chop heads, toes, fingers, etc. I'm not used to my body being the "zoom"! I too am always on my tiptoes or flat on the floor!

    The 50 1.8 is a fabulous little lens though!

    Thanks, ya! I had opened it up to compensate for the low light. I knew I was compromising DOF and sharpness for the most part. But also just because I was excited for the lens ;)

    In the posed pictures, I stopped down to 5.6.
