First pictures with new lens!

Yay! I got my 85mm 1.8. I really like it! I have to stand WAY far back, lol. I was taking some pictures for my family and my grandma was like "don't you need to stand closer??", haha.

Anyway I did my nephew's 18 month photo shoot. I am very happy with the pictures! Let me know what you think!

I think they're gorgeous! So lovely and crisp. I'm loving my 90mm macro for outdoor portraits at the moment for the same reason. Not that I've taken much other than snapshots lately and photos for the course I'm doing. I just can't find the time.

Wow, that's some serious narrow depth of field. They look great! How did you do that without focusing issues?

awwww so cute!

The backing way up is why I'm reconsidering this lens in favour of the 35 mm.
Gah, so torn!

Thank you so much ladies!

Christina, the depth of field on this lens is pretty amazing! And I know I would have had more OOF images if I'd been using my 50mm. I love this lens!

Blue, good luck with your decision! During the winter, I know I am going to wish I had a 35 mm. No way could I use this thing indoors (at least not easily). But I like being able to be far away and not have to be right in their faces.
