New Camera Lens

Two years ago I got a nice DSLR camera for Christmas. It was a Nikon D3100 that came in a kit with two lens. I’m embarrassed to say it, but I didn’t learn how to use it much in manual mode like I had wanted to. Part of the reason for this is that my friend Katherine takes awesome pictures, and she pretty much got all the nice portraits that we could ever need or want! Plus, cell phone pics are getting better and better these days.

Anyhow, for Christmas this year I got my first prime lens. I didn’t even know what a prime lens was until Katherine told me about it. She took a lot of our maternity shots with Josh with a prime lens, and I loved how they turned out. One of the great things about a prime lens is that it almost completely eliminates the need for a flash, even when indoors with very low light.

I’ve been experimenting with my prime lens (in case you’re interested, it’s a AF-S Nikkor 35mm) and I’m really enjoying it! Just thought I’d post some pictures below. They’re nothing special, just pics of random objects and my kiddos on any given typical day. Sometimes the less formal pics are the ones I enjoy most.
