Spring Fun!

Just some fun pics! Have I mentioned I LOVE my new camera! I still know absolutely nothing about it, but I'm getting a little better at manual pictures. I also bought a new lens for it, that makes the blurriness in the back which I love!The lens is a Nikon 50mm Prime f/1.8. It's a called a prime lens because it doesn't zoom. You can get them new on Amazon for about $150. For some Nikon cameras like mine it's a manual focus only. The larger cameras have a focus motor built in, but they are much larger/heavier cameras. They make the same thing for Canon cameras, it's just the Canon brand. I really recommend this lens if your camera is compatible with it..

Carrie @

I stumbled across your blog--you have a beautiful family! I wish I had a great camera. My friend just started her own photography business with an awesome camera. She took a lot of classes to figure out its potential. I wish you the best with your new toy!
