My Forgotten Lens

We had a lovely lazy Easter weekend here in the Cameron household. So I pulled out a little lens that I hadn’t used in a while – the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 fixed lens. Since the aperture is so large (f/1.8) it makes the forground and background very blurry – which can create some great effects! However, it can also be tricky. You have to pick exactly what you want the lens to focus on. In the picture below I chose to focus on Willie’s nose:

And in this one I chose to focus on Willie’s eye. Even 3 or 4 inches makes a difference.

It was great to just play around with my lens and my pup – he was such a good boy we went straight to the park for some fun! I love my life as a pet photographer.
