50mm ♥

50mm ♥

I cashed in some of my Citi Reward points for a few Amazon gift cards and snagged the sweet Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II for only $13. It was a little birthday present for myself hehe. It’s taken me some time learning to deal with the cropped image (maybe I should have gone for a 30mm $___$), but I think I’ve got the hang of it! I’m still a little embarrassed that I need to get up and step away so far from the table to shoot things in public, but I must learn to DEAL. I spent the last two months shooting with it and other than the beautiful soft focus, I really appreciate how lightweight it is. HAHA my priorities! But honestly, it’s seriously no fun carrying a 1.5lb camera around especially because I’m one of those people who carry a humongous bag. It really is such a lovely lens and I completely understand why people adore it. I’m a bit worried about the build (it’s mostly plastic), but having spent only $13, I’m sure it won’t break my bank if I had to replace it – fingers crossed nonetheless because I love it!!!

Commemorative launch post!
If you’ve made it this far back, then hey at least there’s something for you to read here.

Hello hello! My name is susan. I have a lot of feelings about things and this is a place for them to go. I enjoy taking pictures so there will be frequent photo posts! This is a work in progress until I figure things out, so if there is anything that’s off or doesn’t look right, please let me know!

★ An eternity of gratitude to F and L.
