New toy

Many of you that know me know that I like to play with photography. Despite what many say, I am not a good photographer, I just take a LOT of photos and throw away the bad ones. : ) When I do take pictures, I much prefer natural light over flash- it feels softer and more natural, and you don't get nasty shadow or devil eyes. But unless there is a LOT of light around, your camera lens must stay open a long time to get the photo, and any amount of motion (of the subject or the camera) makes a mess of things. Unless of course, you have a fast lens.
So today I made the splurge and bought myself a good (not pro, but not beginner) fast lens and I am so excited to play with it. Fortunately, I have a whole pack of dogs that are used to me taking pictures of them and they play along.
So here, for you to see are my first two photos, no retouching with the new lens. I'm like a kid in a candy shop.
