And then some dark restaurant at my cousin Beth’s bachelorette dinner(I will refrain from showing these because I didn’t ask anyone if I could use their picture and also because they were mostly blurry!). This helped me figure out how far I could push the lens without using flash. Apparently, I pushed too far. Damn you Italian restaurants with your mood lighting! : )
I took this picture to remind me why I live where I live and do what I do. It’s massively sappy, but good lord, the leaves were falling on a perfect beautiful morning while all the neighborhood families walking their kids to school. I mean come on! How great is that?
Some of those leaves I was talking about…
I also got a couple good outdoor shots of my kid, even though it was crazy bright out, so that’s encouraging.
The verdict? I have much to learn. This lens is certainly not a cure-all for my ignorance, but I am so pleased with what I’ve been able to do so far.
