Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (now that it’s almost halfway through December!) and that your holiday prep is well underway… that date sneaks up on all of us, I think!
In the spirit of holiday, I just wanted to pop in and share some super cute nuggets that I was lucky enough to shoot a couple weekends ago for their family’s holiday card. Oh, and show off why I think everyone needs the super high quality, yet super affordable Canon 50mm … I mean.. just look at that delicious, creamy, velvety bokeh.
Okay, the cuteness helps, but for reals, this lens is a game changer. I don’t think I have thought twice about my other lenses since clicking this baby into place.
If anyone is considering an additional lens, I clearly can’t find enough praises to sing. The crisp quality, the wide aperture, the compact feel… the list goes on. My only regret is that I didn’t pounce on this lens sooner. If anyone is looking for a last minute gift for a photographer family member or friend? I highly recommend this little gem. A nice, affordable $125 (+ free shipping on Amazon!). And I promised this isn’t some type of ad or sponsored post. I mean, my lens was free, but that was thanks to Chase Visa’s nifty rewards program where I just happened to have 125000 points saved up. Yup. Exactly enough. I choose to see that as fate. I was definitely meant to purchase a lens rather than pay down my credit card bill for the month. Right?
