Florida Through a New Lens

One of the Christmas gifts I received this year was a new lens for my DSLR camera. The boy got me a 50mm 1.4f lens! We were in Florida over the holiday, and I couldn’t wait to try it out. Verdict: I am in LOVE with it! Super speedy focusing and beautiful blurred backgrounds make me happy. Here are some shots I took while getting to know my new lens:

Do you have an SLR or DSLR? What’s your favorite lens to use?


  1. You’re pictures look great! I’m still getting adjusted to my DSLR so I’m not sure what the benefits are to different lenses. I just have the 18-55mm lens that came with the camera.

    1. Thanks!! Yeah, I was using the 18-55mm one that came with my camera before this, too. But this new lens makes such a difference! Love it. It has faster auto focus, and a lower aperture range for those nice blurred backgrounds.
