Mama got a new lens

Wednesday, October 29, 2014
This photography "stuff" has become a bit of an obsession lately. I enjoy taking quality photos of my family and I'm really learning more than I ever expected to learn about the entire process of taking photos. That being said, I am already realizing that certain accessories I own have placed limitations on the type of photos I want to take. Although I have zero plans of pursuing a career in photography, I keep reminding myself that creating my own art in the form of a photo is enough validation to splurge when needed on camera accessories. Which brings me to the title of this blog post. I purchased a new lens yesterday after consulting with other photographers in an "inspire me" group. I want to take better quality photos while I am indoors.

It's been raining too much in the state of Washington these last couple weeks, so a lot of the photos i've taken have had to be indoors. I don't mind taking pictures indoors, but it definitely is discouraging when you don't have a lens that fits your needs. Since purchasing my new lens, I have noticed a complete 180 in my indoor photos. They aren't as grainy, and they have this "creamy" factor to them. I absolutely love it! So far I've got three different kinds of lenses, and at least one of them suit my needs for indoor and outdoor photos.

I plan on purchasing at least a couple more lenses as I learn and grow more with my current DSLR. For those of my readers that were anxious to see my photography blog... I opted not to share it. I'm recording my own personal document of my experience, and as much as I love sharing my life and passions with you guys, I'd really like to keep this journey to myself (for the most part). Take a look at some of the indoor photos I snapped this morning. I didn't edit them or change anything. These are straight from the camera. Isn't Ava bug just a doll? She's been working on her letters and numbers from the learning books her nana sent.  I hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as I do! The exposure is a bit too high, but overall, I'm impressed.

Happy Wednesday all!
