Hidden Gem

As I posted earlier today, I had big plans while resting.  Started off outside for about half an hour working on the first part of my photography assignment.  The weather was gorgeous.  Beyond gorgeous ... especially after the extreme cold in the beginning of the week.  I played around with a few things before deciding on what I wanted to capture ... and decided to use my 50mm 1.8 lens.  Can I just say that, as far as lenses go, this is the best $100.00 lense you can ever find.  I absolutely LOVE it.  I can't believe that I have had it all this time (a couple of years at least) and never learned how to use it properly.  It is easy, really.  You move yourself .. not the lens.  Enough said.  Needless to say, I got my photos done and even manage to capture a few faves on my k9 babies ... until the flash card corrupted.  *cry*.  Fortunately, I am very good at removing images from my memory and was able to get the ones I needed for my assigment.  Unfortunately, I lost the ones of my pooches.  Hopefully tomorrow will be as nice and the snow as fluffly. 

Oh .. those big plans, you ask?  Not so big.  I survived outside but barely.  Once inside and on the computer, fatigue hit as did the upset tummy.  Up to bed I went to enjoy some Netflix under the comfort of my duvet, snuggled with my pooches.  An enjoyable way to have plans altered, I must say. 

In the meantime, here are the photos I took for the assignment.  It was all about changing the ISO in 'P' mode and seeing what it does to your subject.  Alot of this isnt new to me but it is great to refresh ... in lamens terms this time.

Once again, enjoy your weekend. 

PS - it's hard to see the blurred background at this size but there really is a difference between 100iso & 1600 iso, i promise.
