Last weekend I got my second ever camera lens, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. Sean got it for me as a birthday gift and I’m happy to say that so far I’m very pleased with it. I was torn on what I wanted for my birthday other than a new car or vacation, I decided that maybe a new camera lens would be a great choice because lately I’m using my camera pretty much on a daily basis. I decided to get the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens because I liked the blurred background affect and I liked the fact that it was very different from the lens that came with my camera, hence forcing me to learn how to use it properly and really step up my photography game.
Now I’ve only really used this lens twice and these two times I was just really testing it out but so far I can say that this will be a game changer for me. What I like about it is that it seemingly makes every photo artsy with the blurred background. Like for example the photo of the Luna’s ball on the couch looks like a really nice photo and it’s a chewed to death toy! The thing that I will have to get used to is that there’s no zoom, so that means I’ll have to be either far away or super close up to get the shot and the focus point I want. Hopefully soon I’ll photography something other than Luna but hey she loves being a part of photoshoots, so much so she has her own Instagram account @Luna.Lu.Aussie, definitely go follow her if you don’t already for daily cute puppy photos. I’m excited to experiment more with the lens and start to dive deeper into the world of photography and of course I’ll bring you along for the journey! Any photographers reading this, let me know in the comments your favorite lenses!
