Ahem, it’s been a wee bit quiet around here after the Memorial Day weekend. It was a nice and relaxing one until Tuesday when I had to go to work and unfortunately had some car trouble (as in someone decided to slash my tire, thanks for that btw.)
Anyhoo, I bought a new zoom lens for my Nikon D60 – it has a 70-300mm focus zoom with macro capabilities. Really fun but it might take some time getting used to. I took a few shots below. The downside of the new lens – it’s HUGE and a bit heavier than the standard 18-55mm – it also requires you to be very far away from your subject.
I love love looove the funky depths of field the pictures get, I can take pictures of Viki from across the room and not have her be self-conscious about being photographed. Weird dog, I know. She sees the light and closes her eyes…
I’m still playing around with different angles and things, just trying to get a feel for it. Right now I put the standard lens back on so I could take some DIY pictures I’ll be posting tomorrow, yay! Hello Friday
P.S. – my mommy got me a new iPod – so I’m all over Instagram – check itt @helloweronika :)
