Settle in it’s going to be a long and random post.
First up I attempted the third part of the Two Peas week 6 tutorial. “Position your subject so that he/she/it is parallel to the window, while you are perpendicular to the window.” Plus even while sick and teething my kid is cute. Whiny but cute. I probably could have gotten away with posting one of these pictures but I love his expressions.
My new camera bag/ purse arrived in the mail yesterday. So far I really like it but I think I’m going to have to get a case for another lens to stick in the personal belongings area. The padded box only holds my camera with a lens on it and either my or another lens. There are going to be times where I’ll want my camera two lenses and my flash. It does hold a couple of diapers, wipes, disposable changing pad, my wallet, keys, and face wipes with plenty of room left over. I think I’ll even be able to fit my water bottle in one of the external pockets.
Just because my kid is cute and for a little while this afternoon he wasn’t a whiny mess of sick and teething. I don’t normally allow him to stand on the coffee table but I was standing up there to get a better angle of my bag and he was copying. Silly boy.
I got another package from UPS today. I’ve been agonizing going back and for about this lens for weeks. A few days a go I finally hit the purchase button! I’m very excited to start playing with it.
By the time I got it on my camera I was losing daylight so I just snapped a few pictures of a craft Blake and I are currently working on.
I think this will be a good out and about lens. I really love the 50mm prime I have but it cab be limiting. I look forward to learning how to use it!
