Default Love The New Lens (+ Finally Feels Like Fall)

Warning: Very picture heavy!

I finally caved and picked up an 85mm f/1.8 a few weeks ago, although I wasn't completely sure how I felt about my decision. It's the most I've ever spent on a lens, and I already did have the 50mm f/1.8. Plus, 85mm on a DX camera just isn't the easiest focal length to work with... But having admired Alexis' photos for the longest time, and then hearing another photographer (on another dog forum) rave about the lens, I eventually decided to go for it.

Anyway, I didn't get to really test it out with Trent until this past weekend. And holy crap, I absolutely LOVE this lens. LOVE. The focal length is a little inconvenient, but it makes up for it in every single way. I love the quality, the speed, the creamy smoothness of the backgrounds, and how clean the images look. I'm just so thrilled with it.

On to the pictures!

Just as I was complaining about how unseasonal my neighborhood looked, the leaves all began to fall.








Hey Trent, you have something stuck... all over your head


Oh well

And posing, of course


Flying leap!






Gorgeous boy










And a stacked picture to end the day. The bad graffiti annoys me, but it was the best background I could find.

On the next day, we went for an afternoon walk to one of the nearby fields. Unfortunately it's also under construction, so we're enjoying it while it lasts.

More Fall-y pictures


Cute dog is cute






Annnnd, he's bored




...so he ran off the bridge and decided to go swimming in the mud.

Yes. Yes, I do <3

Later that evening, we headed out for pictures during my favorite time of the day. Hope everyone isn't feeling bored of these golden hour pictures!! I really wanted to test out the lens and wow - I love how it photographs light!

These first few are straight out of camera.






Frolicking again


All smiles!


Spotted a groundhog


Sometimes I wonder if he's part pointer or hound






Ready to head home!


Thanks for looking!

Wow... love that dog. And love these pictures. I have really been wanting a new lens, I still just have my kit. Now you've got me wanting that lens! Though I may go for the 50mm first simply because of price. Trent is gorgeous.

I desperately need at least one new lens, I hadn't ever considered this one before but I will definitely keep it in mind now!
