Since investing in a DSLR for the first time about a month ago (I have the Canon 60D) , I’ve really fallen in love with the having complete manual control over what I want to convey in my photos. It has been so much fun, I can’t believe I haven’t switched over earlier.
After a couple of weeks with my camera, I decided that I needed a prime lens with a larger aperture to the ‘kit lens’ that I got as a bundle with my Canon 60D (the Canon 18-55 3.5-5.6) because I’m a bit obsessed with images that feature shallow depth of field.
So I picked up the Canon 50mm 1.8, AKA the ‘Plastic Fantastic’ recommended to me by the lovely Maria of Crashing Red blog. Probably the best value for money prime lens out there, and in the grand scheme of things, it’s cheap as chips. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
I haven’t really taken any blog images with this lens yet, but I must have taken a million cat photos lol. Here are a few.
