As I mentioned last week, I've been getting braver with shooting manual and learning more about DSLR photography, so I treated myself to my first non-kit lens. I'm just starting out so need to arm myself with the basics, and after consulting my more knowledgeable friend Liss, I ended up purchasing a 50mm prime lens. It arrived today and we had fun having our first play around with it! I especially love that top picture, although I do apologise for my crinkled clothing. Oops! Next question is, what lens do I get next? Suggestions please :)


  1. 50mm is awesome :)

    I love the colors, so pretty!

  2. I got a 50mm a few weeks ago and I love it so much! It really does make for a whole different experience shooting with it.

    Hope you're having lots of fun with yours! I'm already thinking about what I should get next too :)

  3. I have a Canon 600D with kit lenses plus the 50mm. I am lusting over a wide angle, but they are just so expensive!! The 50mm is great for high aperture portrait photos and close ups, although mine doesn't focus all to well.


  4. the 50mm lens were my first non-kit lens too. i love it.

    these are great photos; though i always have loved your photos. :)

  5. Love your blog! 50mm lens is awesome, I use it almost all the time. Great pictures!

  6. I love these pictures! I'm still saving up to buy my first DSLR and these pictures are getting me so excited!

  7. I need to get my camera fixed...and then learn how to use it!

    Awesome pictures :)

  8. Love that top photo! You should totally head to Cornwall park in Auckland, later on this month the Cherry trees go into blossom! You'll have so much fun taking beautiful photos of them I'm sure!! :)

  9. How great!

    You should get a lens that is made for some sort of old film camera. I bought one and it is absolutely beautiful, with a shallow depth of field.

  10. yay!! so proud of you learning to do your first low depth of field photos manually! the first photo looks so pretty. id now be saving up for a wideangle with low f/stop for next lens purchase.

    oh and here is a link for learning about aperture,

    enjoy your lens lovely xx
