been without my older lens for closeups for over a year.
i have been taking all my photos with a zoom lens...a
sigma 70~300 mm 1:4-5.6 telephoto zoom or a
small 35 mm nikon coolpix.(which i do love and carry with me
even when i forget to put back the memory stick.)
i actually got two lens....
first a very retro lens...a diana+ plastic 38 mm super~wide.
i bought it online at photojojo. they have some cool stuff.
like the bowling bag for a camera carrying case...it is cute but too
small...i know i ordered it. your camera fits but no extras or extra lens.
the diana lens has a fuzzy sorta of quality.
i need to take it for a spin outdoors...but it has just been way too cold.
this gives you a very old fashioned feeling.
my other lens is also new to me;
a tamron DiII AF 18~200 mm f/3.5-6.3 XR
LD aspherical (if) macro
i also bought this online through amazon.
what does all that mean...i have no idea.
what i do know is i will be able to take close~up shots without being so far away.
i love getting right over a flower, butterfly, insect, or any other living creature.
i also love very up~close and personal face shots. which i haven't been able to take in so long.
the shots that follow were taken as soon as i took the lens out of the box and put in on my
canon eos digital rebel...of course i will need to read instructions...hehe.
i am so very excited to have this lens.
some of kids were waiting on dinner so they became my willing subjects so
mom could get back to her real job of taking care of them.
as soon as the weather cooperates i will be outside with my new lens.
i hope to be taking some brilliant photos for you to enjoy or at least some decent ones.
happy january days.
