New Lens day November 4, 2009

So today is new lens day. I’ve gone through a few wide angle lenses that just didn’t seem right for whatever reason and I think maybe I’ve landed on one that I’ll use for a while. Maury suggested this lens probably a year or more ago but I didn’t go with it then. I wanted to go with Canon and I didn’t think this lens would work on a full frame camera. I finally got the lens I should have gotten in the beginning and that’s a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8. It’s a great and rather inexpensive lens for the quality. Sometimes you get what you pay for and other times more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better.

Blah, blah, blah….anyway, when I get a new lens that means the boys must be photographed. Jackson already knows this rule and Mikey will soon enough. Enjoy!

Okay, I’m having way too much fun with this lens.  I told Jackson I was going to make him look like a giant.  This is his best giant face and stance.  Notice how high he pulls his pants up.  We need to work on de-geeking him next year while we’re homeschooling.

I got a new lens yesterday and I think I’m really going to like it.  It’s a Tamron 17-55 f/2.8 wide angle.  I’m looking forward to using it for real but until then here are a few strange shots from around our house.  Our curtain is falling down.  And yes, we live kind of a cluttered life.  Get over it.
