I got a 50 mm lens for my birthday.
I don't pretend to know anything about photography
But I do know this.
My DSLR could possibly cure cancer
that's how fabulous it is.
This all stems from babies.
Truly. If this was a perfect world,
We'd go in for an ultrasound and the doctor would say...
Would you like to know what you're having?
Oh, Yes please.
It's a girl! and wait... I see something else...
Yes! Let's try and get a better look... Oh yes... this is incredible...
You're also having a.... a.... A CANON T1i DSLR!!
So that's why my heartburn's been so gnarly!
Babies should come with instructions, bags of money and a dope camera.
I know. I took the words right out of your mouth.
Anyway. I asked for a 50 mm because...
And by research... I mean, I typed best camera lenses in my google bar.
Turns out... It was a super choice.
This lens is SO fun and serves it's purpose well.
Personally (now remember I know NOTHING about what I'm talking about)
I love being able to put my camera in manual and try to get as focused
as I can on my subject and have everything else incredibly blurry.
It feels like the picture is screaming at me.
That made sense in my head.
The 50mm helps me achieve the "screaming affect"
Of course I could have bought a macro lens but
it would have cost me about 10 times more.
Just not to that level of devotion yet.
The biggest problem is
things look perfectly focused in that teeny tiny window
and yet, sadly...
focus no bueno.
Here's some pictures taken with the 50...
Moses, my love.
My Sweet Co-dependent Love.
AND... BEHOLD! The baby who came MINUS the instructions, bags of money and camera.
But I kept her anyway.
You may not eat my baby.
But trust me, I completely understand the temptation.
Now I'm going to show you why it SUCKS to have your camera on manual
when you are a beginner.
Man, I am dumb!
Why is my focus on Ginger Ginger and not Mirror Ginger?
Alright. a mistake so nice I did it twice.
Um excuse me while I go drink a gallon of bleach in an effort to PUNISH MYSELF.
Seriously... I swear I thought it was in focus.
I probably was shaking from the excitement of the photo opp.
In all honesty, I have hundreds more like that.
I'll spare you.
