Loving the 50

I recently became the proud owner of a 50 mm f/1.8D lens. Here is just a very small sampling of some of the new pictures I took of the boys. I am finding that since there is no zoom on the lens I have to move around a lot more. I thought that might bother me but I am finding my pictures to have a good variety of perspectives that I didn't get with the zoom lens.

Nicolò as cute as always.

Francesco's gorgeous eyelashes

I am not sure if I like the way the sun is hitting his face but I love how the background is blurred (I didn't do that, that is strictly the lens at work)

Again the background is blurred and he really stands out.

I didn't do much more than a quick contrast adjust on theses, I may tweek them a bit in PhotoShop (one I reload my software). Things here have been really busy with my Recertification Exam and my work project really picking up the pace. If you don't hear from me for a short bit don't be alarmed, I am still lurking and try to comment when I get a chance. Of course I will still try and post at least once a week even if it is just a few pics of mia due bambini.
