early birthday gift and more flash practice – charlotte family photographer
This time last year I was ordering my first DSLR as my “early birthday gift to me” present. Fast forward one year: now I’m 2 camera bodies and 4 lenses deep, running this blog and booking family photo sessions. I would not have believed it if anyone had told me!
My early birthday gift this year is the 50mm 1.4 prime lens. I already knew it was going to knock my socks off because I LOVElovelove my 35mm 1.8…and it did.
Of course I had to take some practice shots tonight 🙂 but today has been so gray and dreary that I was also forced (oh, twist my arm!) to use my Nikon sb-910 speedlight. These are a few of my favorite SOOC snap shots from the boys dinner time and during a pre-bedtime puzzle activity with my husband helping Will.
