The wannabe photographer gets a new lens.

March 25, 2013 · 25 comments

My new camera lens arrived this afternoon.   It took me all of about five minutes to click it on and start searching for things to snap at.   It does fabulous Bokeh – which makes me very happy.  It also captures details remarkably well for a $200 lens.  That makes me happy too.    This is what my new lens can do…….

I think it must Seana. I don’t understand much photography speak but I’m thinking yes. Its can be tricky to get it to focus on what – but when you do it’s amazing!!

I know. Isn’t it great. I took me ages to get that bee to stay still long enough to snap him 🙂 I also snapped a great little ant too. Thanks so much for visiting Emily.

It was the very first thing I bought with the money I made from writing this blog. Took me ages to save it. It’s only a bottom of the range DLSR – but I love it 🙂 And the Bee was hard work. They buzz around so fast it’s hard to capture them.

Hey Mandy, it’s a Nikon D5100 and I just got a 40mm Micro lens. I’m a real wanna be. I know nothing about photography – but so love taking a good picture.
