    You must have been up close with the 35mm...
    Looks like Trixie doesn't mind the camera in her face... LOL....

    thanks Wally, yes I think I am conditioning her to having her pic taken and getting in close since I chase her around so much

    Thanks Rebecca :)

    Nice pictures, Lisa. My dog is not nearly so cooperative at close shooting range. She just sits there and turns her head to the side with an air of "I'm not in the mood at this moment!'

    That 35/2 is a jewel of a lens, eh?!

    well Trixie usually gets her beotchy face on and will turn her head as well, but she has being much more cooperative lately. I have also discovered for good portraits to just hold a toy or treat to get her to focus.

    These were the first ones I snapped with this lens and I love it, I think maybe more than my 50mm:eek: 

    BTW...I am making your collars today

  7. :eek:  Blasphemy!

    You do NOT!
    oh man. You got me wanting the Sigma 30 f1.4, and now you got me wanting THIS lens.:biggrin:
