this little lens of mine, I’m gonna let it shine….

I’m madly in love with my Nikon 35mm 1.8 prime lens! I bought it last year and kind of ignored it for a while–I always grabbed my telephoto lens first. I love how responsive this prime lens is in low light situations. It gives me awesome bokeh and great focus! If you’re looking for a great Christmas gift to put under the tree for a photography buff, I can totally recommend this little lens. It’s relatively inexpensive too.

Photo 355…


Get Over It

Project: Photo 365

I’m that person! The one who just can’t let go of Christmas. In a rush to put up lots of decorations real early. Slow to take them all down again. If I wasn’t married, I’d probably leave them up all year long!!!!!

It’s a two-fer day: two shots on one day. I couldn’t help fooling around with this shot in Photoshop. I blew out the exposure; pumped up the saturation; et voila.

I love my pretty pink lights and they make awesome bokeh!


A whimsical coincidence. The title of this post is Photo 355, and this the the 355th post I’ve blogged over the past two years!
