Ketchup and Mustard
______My citizens, thar be big news for this blog: I, Ali, hath gained the almighty power of... a funkyfresh new camera lens! An 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, to be exact. And my, am I pleased with it already. Pleased to the point where I have been squeeing at the thought of one day being able to take even better pictures with it. I won't lie, taking this first set of pictures frustrated me a bit, as does anything new that makes its way into my life, but the fact that most of the pictures ended up being in focus was more than enough to satisfy me. I'm super happy that they ended up having bokeh-licious backgrounds, too. That was exactly what I wanted in my new lens--sharpness and good bokeh. It seems that my amateurish research tactics paid off. Though a macro lens, I think it will prove to be quite nice for fashion blogging. Anyway, please bear with me the next few posts as I learn to use this new lens!
______So yep, this week has been just swell. I began work and a summer Biology course this week, and so now my Friday feels like a real Friday opposed to just another day of summer. I rather like being busy during the summer--I feel so much more productive, and days off are so much more relaxing than they normally would be. Right now, I'm on my patio, blogging, drinking a scrumptious mug of blueberry tea, and silently jamming out to my favorite Pandora stations. 'Tis a wonderful Friday, and I hope yours is, too!
______Until the next post, lovely citizens!
