Having Fun with my New Lens

Happy Friday!  We are enjoying a relaxing day at home as my oldest has no school.  Yesterday was a half day for him and the sun was shining so we headed outside for some fun and of course I had to bring out my camera and new 50mm lens.  (For Mindy, who asked which 50mm lens I have...it is a Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II)

Here are my favorite photos from yesterday:

Can  you tell I'm learning a lot in my photography class?!  I love this last photo...the crisp focus of my son and the tree with a slightly blurred background, not to mention it just totally captures one of the many joys of childhood...climbing trees! 

 All these photos are straight out of the camera, as I still need to learn a lot more about post processing.  I think I'm going to take Elisha's new class, Photo Finish, to learn more about how to use Photoshop and Lightroom to take great photos to high quality works of art!

Have you recently posted some photos on your blog or do you visit a great photography blog regularly?  I'd love to hear about it so I can take a peek!
