Practice

Brian gives really awesome Christmas presents, and this year was no exception. He gave me a beautiful new Canon 100mm L f/2.8. Whoa...it's really nice.

My favorite shot with it so far is this one of little baby Jack:

I just love these.

So I decided to get a little practice in with it Tuesday afternoon. It was nice enough to play outside and Andrew was kind of cooperative.

But it's a lot slower to focus than my 50mm and Andrew's really fast so I got some pretty soft ones like these:

But then I got this:

It's a good thing we don't have to shoot film anymore. I get so many bad images to get a few winners.

I'll leave y'all with this great post over at Darcy's blog, Life With My 3 Boybarians.

Don't Put Off the Printing

I am so, so bad about printing my photos. But I love her idea of creating a To Print folder each month. I'm going to start this this month and see how it goes.

  • I love, love, love the pictures of baby Jack! Also, I would highly recommend the "To Print" File for every month. I'm really bad about printing off my photos, so its really nice to already have that step taken care of when I finally do get around to printing them.

  • Congrats on the new lens! The newborn pics are amazing, great work!

    I love Andrew's expressions and the color of his eyes is beautiful.

    Thanks for the heads up on Darcy's post. I haven't printed any of my shots, ever, I can't even believe that but the folder is a great idea, even if I don't print them out monthly, I can always go back to that folder. Great idea!
