This week has been freezing cold and snowy, so I ran out to find something twisty in the back garden. The wintery branches and vines were ideal. My neighbour’s garage is blue which made a great background.
I have a new lens on my Canon Rebel xs 1000D, (Canon 50mm f/1.4 fixed) which gives a lovely depth of field and I am super happy with it. It is a whole new learning curve for me as I get used to the different perspective through the lens and I learn to focus in the correct place for the photograph I want.
I did learn that I do better with this lens when I am using manual focus instead of auto focus. Always learning, always photographing.
I found this post at A Beautiful Mess very helpful in learning about which lens to choose.

Happy Thursday, I hope it is warm with you!
Oh, I love those! Not the freezing cold weather, but, you know. I have a 50mm lens, too, and love it for things like this.
I might be asking you for tips Greta. I am still getting used to it, but I do like it lots.
you got some camera skills there lady! very nice!
Oh thanks Tracie, I am a bit crap at the technicals, but I do love taking pics!
i’m the same way. i don’t let my lack of technical stop me, although it used to.
in the end either you are happy with the outcome or not. keep snappin sister!
I agree, I sometimes have a technical panic, but then carry on regardless!
