Testing new lens

Now I’m not buying this lens…just renting for the wedding on Saturday. It’s a church that doesn’t allow flash photography so I wanted to make sure that I had the best lens possible for that type of setting. I went to BorrowedLenses.com to rent the Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 lens. This lens is a monster lens. I had no idea that the lens was so massive. I’m not sure, and I have an email out but the lens won’t autofocus. Of course it’s supposed to. I just wonder if my Nikon D90 isn’t the right “make” (for lack of a better word) and therefore won’t support the autofocus feature. I hope the it does and the solution is simple because I’m not sure I can trust my eyes for tack sharp photos. You’ll also notice in the images I took that the sharpness in some areas are spotty.  I wonder if anyone knows if this is normal. I am waiting on an e-mail back from borrowed lenses.

Golden Morning

The other morning I was going through my normal routine of getting ready for work when I noticed the wonderful sunrise and the light that is was casting on the trees. So, of course, I got my camera and went outside for a few moments. In the last image, I just LOVE the contrast of the sky and the sunlight. In the other shots, I went into the field across from my street and got down really low to the ground. What I love about the D90 is the live preview on it. I was able to switch from the view finder to seeing the shot in the LCD screen. I don’t use that option all that much, but it saved me from having to lay in the dirt to get those shots. 😀

Test shots using the Canon 30D

My friend Samantha, of The Roxy Studio’s, is letting me use her camera and her 50mm 1.4 lens for the wedding on Thursday. I’ve been wanting to buy this type of lens ever since I saw what my other friend, Jen Rinaldi of Jen Rinaldi Photography was achieving. All I can say is oh my goodness!!! This is going to have to be my next purchase. This lens is awesome!!! I’m also learning that I like the way the 30D handles and how it feels in my hand. I love my Nikon, don’t get me wrong, it’s my “baby” LOL. But I could see me buying a canon camera one day too. I like the controls and the dials in the back. Both Nikon and Canon feels really nice in my hands.

So, anyway, Sam you are the most amazing person in the world. You are awesome!! Thank you. ;o) See you on Friday. (Oh, I guess my printer is also a card reader, so I was able to get the jpegs off the card, not the RAW though)

Here are the shots I took. Obviously, I need to practice a bit more. My oldest and I were up way too late last night goofing off taking funny pictures with the Canon. I was practicing the 3200 ISO setting. We got some hilarious shots of each other. I’m not sure if I’ll be showing the pics she took of me thought. HA!!
