This week has been freezing cold and snowy, so I ran out to find something twisty in the back garden. The wintery branches and vines were ideal. My neighbour’s garage is blue which made a great background. I have a new lens on my Canon Rebel xs 1000D, (Canon 50mm f/1.4 fixed) which gives a lovely depth of field and I am super happy with it. It is a whole new learning curve for me as I get used to the different perspective through the lens and I learn to focus in the correct place for the photograph I want. I did learn that I do better with this lens when I am using manual focus instead of auto focus. Always learning, always photographing. I found this post at A Beautiful Mess very helpful in learning about which lens to choose. Read all about Through The Lens Thursday here. Happy Thursday, I hope it is warm with you!
