I splurged and finally bought myself the new lens I’ve been wanting for close to a year. Actually, it isn’t THE lens I’ve been wanting, I just knew I wanted A new lens. The part that took me a year to decide was WHAT lens it would be. Finally, after doing some online research and consulting with my good friend and favorite photographer, I decided to take the plunge with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens. Yeah, all those letters and numbers don’t mean much to me either. What an awesome lens, though. I am so pleased with some of the pics I took at the park yesterday. It is a lens for extremely close up photography (hence the term “macro”) but I was able to use it as a sort of all purpose lens at the park. I had read that it was an excellent portrait lens and, if you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you know I love to take impromptu portraits of my kids. AND I can go super close on things… we’ll see what I can find that will let me get that close up 🙂
And if you have a favorite pic, please leave a comment, I’d love to hear!
