It's almost Memorial weekend and that's the kick off of our busy summer. I haven't even had time to log on to update my blog and I haven't had the chance to read all of my favorite blogs. I really hate being blocked at work! It's so inconvenient for me!

I finally rented the lens I'm thinking about getting and it just came in the mail today. I didn't have alot of time to play with it because I went to the gym and then I washed my car and helped David a little with the yard work.

Here are some of the pictures I was able to take. They are SOOC (straight out of the camera), no edits yet.

I could tell I really liked this lens from the first picture I took with it. It's a fixed 35mm f/1.8 Af-s Nikon lens and it's really good at shooting in low light. I have no problems taking indoor pictures without using the flash and I don't have to constantly search for the right setting to get the exposure right. I feel like it's so much easier to get good pictures with this lens.

I take all of my pictures in Manual Mode now that I understand it so much more. I feel like it's pretty simple now that I'm used to it and the pictures turn so out much better than shooting in auto mode.
