a whole new world

My new Canon f/1.4 prime lens came last night & I all but bear-hugged that delivery man!
As you know, I struggled with the decision between the f/1.8 & more expensive f/1.4 lens, & while I haven't ever used the f/1.8 lens, after playing around with my new baby (aka stalking my dog around the house)... I know that I am in LOVE with this lens! 
If any of you Canon f/1.4 lens owners have any tips of your own, or sources that you have used before, I would love to hear about it! And after I get this little sucker figured out, I will share more about my decision to splurge for the f/1.4 lens!

  14. I'm working with the 35mm/1.8 right now but thinking I might upgrade to the 50mm/1.4 once I get a few freelance checks in. Or, I might rent some lenses and see what I like first, I just want something that makes me look taller, blonder, and maybe more like a VS Angel. Which lens is that?

    I love everything about this post: i found your blog just surfing on the net and i fell in love with it immediately.. but... after having seen you own a pug (i really can't wait to have one, they are sooo lovely) and you talk about photography... i'm definitely your biggest fan! :)
