A New Camera Lens For Me!

I was so excited this Christmas to get a new lens for my Nikon d60! My father and mother-in-law gifted me with the Nikkor 35mm! I've read on a few blogs here and there that this lens was a nice addition and a good investment. I hope to learn all about it in the new year. I would really love to get better quality pictures and train my eye to capture those moments, ya know?

I had some time this weekend and played with it a little over break and I am loving it so far!

I captured a couple goodies of my sweet little family.

I just love that husband and doggies of mine. They are all too cute.

I love that lens, my husband got me that one for christmas last year and I love it so much that I ended up selling my 28-55mm lens since the 35mm is so much nicer, I just have to use my legs for zooming.

Your puppy looks just like my Riley Sue! Black Shihtzu's (or however you spell it) are so rare! We got her because she was the last in the litter...but she's the best dog I could ever have!

Congrats on the new lens! Black dogs are hard to photograph, a DSLR works wonders!

What a wonderful gift!!! I have a prime lens and love it...but I REALLY need a wide angle. My rooms are too tiny to make my 55mm work its magic...goodness knows I have tried. Love your pics my dear..so cute!

Cheers~

I have that lens too! Love it. I use it for everything since the day it came in the mail (almost two years ago).

I have the D90 and was debating between the 50mm & the 35mm, what made you decided to go with the 35?
