No One is Safe Anymore

by Kay~Kacey on 4/6/2008

Be careful, mama’s got a brand new toy.

the impish one

A new lens. A prime 50mm 1.8 lens. A “nifty fifty”. It’s under a hundred bucks and takes excellent, sharp photos.

geeky one and girlfriend

I love it. It’s a whole new way to look at the world.

(As an aside, I so need to drag out my photoshop books on portrait processing. Need some more tips)

no one is safe

No one is safe from this lens.

high heeled shoes

Nothing is sacred.

glass paper weights

Nothing is safe. My lens is everywhere. And in low light? Fantastic! I’m in love with my new lens. Don’t tell SuperGuy! He should be very, very jealous. :love:

the fight

“MOM! Put the camera down and The Impish One won’t get hurt!”

Great shots. And those are some great shoes on that cute girlfriend’s feetsies! Have a lovely day with you new toy. 😀

Great pics! I can’t wait till I can get a new camera.

That’s so cool! Your boys are so cute, too.

You’re such a great photographer! I’m envious (and seriously thinking about taking photography classes!).

Wow, those are nice, sharp photos.

Tori Lennox April 6, 2008 at 10:25 am

I am extremely jealous over your new lens!!!

Christine April 6, 2008 at 11:08 am

Jealousy here, too! I keep trying to convince hubby I *need* an DSLR. He hasn’t seen the light yet! LOL

Your boys are very handsome! Excellent subjects for your new toy!

Kacey April 6, 2008 at 12:19 pm

My boys are excellent subjects, even if they are very, VERY sick of me this weekend. :mad2:

W-w-w-w-ow! Nice, Kacey. At first, I thought you were going to tell us you had a macro lens, but with the first photo, I knew it was not. You are probably driving everyone nuts and I love it! I am also loving those cute little shoes the girl is wearing. I can’t help at all with portrait photography, but you know who can, dontcha? Miz Booshay (Donna Boucher). She is the bomb. And PW is darn good, too. Good luck and have fun with your brand new toy. 😀

how nice and sharp–love the pics! I have an easyshare 8.2 megapixels, easy camera, idiot friendly software–ideal for me! Hee-hee!

Fabulous! I remember when I got my 50mm prime! It is certainly some sweet stuff! To answer your question about my 5D…yes it is a full frame sensor. And YES I can see a huge difference in the quality. A lot less time spent in photoshop! And a great secret for portrait processing is the soft light layer. Do you know that one? Good stuff to know. The other is a few tricks for the eyes. If you want more info, email me. Have fun! And thanks for rss(ing) my photoblog!

this is great! You are getting some GREAT shots!

You take wonderful pictures! What kind of camera are you using? I have recently purchased my first reall grown up camera, and have discovered the joys of photoshop. It’s all adictive stuff.

Misty Dawn April 7, 2008 at 10:22 am

WOW! I can see why you love the new lens! NOW, if I could just get the new CAMERA… I’d be having a love affair too 😉
