New lens, check out the leaves

Friday, October 31, 2008



After the last shoot with the kids. I noticed the leaves were not coming out the way I wanted them too. So I finally decide to get a faster lens. The Cannon 50mm F1.8 for $89 at Amazon. Not terribly expensive, but I will be packing a lunch for the next couple of months. Let me know what you think of these. Sepia or Color? Got to love the leaves.- SG

I love my 50mm, I use it ALL the time. I love the colored ones, because the fall colors are so gorgeous, it gives it more depth. Have fun playing around with your new lense.

the whole point of shooting foilage...is for the color...go with what the intent is...or use a layer mask and put the kids in bw/sepia and leave the the leaves in color. That is always a cool effect.
