My title is wrong--I forgot that I had on the 85 f1.4 for the first couple of shots. So that first photo is with the 85 @ f1.4. So sorry

I'm trying so hard to get in some play time with the lenses I am testing out. The one I haven't used as much is the 35 f2. The thread that Uncle Frank started in the lens lust forum really got me excited about the focal length.

Seems that when I was using my 17-55 I was always zooming to the long end to shoot the kids. Now I will try zooming out a bit more often.

Brighton with a mouth full of Smarties--but he was looking at me and holding still which is good.

Both shot wide open

These are excellent Terri! I'm so happy to see you enjoying the wonderful world of primes, they're an addicting "collection" that's for sure!

Thanks, Sonya. I can see I will be purchasing some soon. They are more fun than I could have imagined. I doubt my 17-55 sees much use when photographing the grandkids once I get the primes.

But, I will still need it for landscapes, so I will be keeping it.

I suddenly realize how much the twins have grown! Reminds me of the first pictures of Jaden I've seen. The first picture is priceless, nice depth of field, cute pose together with that pleasing window light. Well done, Terri.
