I spent some time today playing with my new lens. My husband got me an AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8G for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I'd love to say I know what all that 'code' means, but all I really know is I can take some great close ups and get some wonderful blur in the background. Yes, I do need to learn more about my camera and lenses - all in good time!
These pics were taken in my studio, on my white sewing table. I didn't quite have the bright sunlight I was hoping for, but overall I'm happy with the results. After creating the collage, I added a couple of Kim Klassen's wonderful textures: "...and then some" at soft light 85% and then "revolution" at multiply 26%.
