For Christmas, Craig went a bit crazy and bought me one heck of a present. We have a Nikon D60 and I have used the heck out of the basic lens combo since EJ was born. I love taking pictures and have made it quite the hobby. As I have gotten more into it, I started looking into adding some lens to our collection. I was shocked to discover that even though our camera was less than 2 years old it was already outdated and the lens were double what the newest model lens were.
After whining to twitter and facebook, I learned that was the main issue with Nikon. Once you were outdated you spent a ton of money, however Canon was different. I am a Canon girl anyway, my high school graduation present was the Canon Rebel 35mm, a camera that I loved and drug all over the States, Europe and Africa. I told Craig that we should start saving and upgrade our stuff to Canon in a year or so.
Well, the man sure got me. Not only did he upgrade me to a Canon, he got me just about every lens you could ever want for a hobby... wide angle, 50mm, telephoto, and fish eye. He got me a bag, filters and a few other odds and ends. Seriously, the only thing I need is to get a strap cover. My husband is amazing and made my Xbox Kinex present look rather lame.
Needless to say I have been sick as a dog since the week after Thanksgiving thanks to the Wee One so I haven't gotten to play with it as much as I wanted but here are a few taken with the 50 mm lens, the lens that started it all.
PS. This lens rocks but is going to take some time to learn the ins and outs of it. So bear with me as I stumble my way through it.
My Kid's eyes sure are amazing.
He looks so old here that it almost makes me sad. No baby here.
