New Lens (Finally Feels Like Fall!)
Warning: Very picture heavy!
I finally caved and picked up an 85mm f/1.8 a few weeks ago, although I wasn't completely sure how I felt about my decision. It's the most I've ever spent on a lens, and I already did have the 50mm f/1.8. Plus, 85mm on a DX camera just isn't the easiest focal length to work with... But having admired GatorDog/Alexis' photos for the longest time, and then hearing another photographer (on another dog forum) rave about the lens, I eventually decided to go for it.
Anyway, I didn't get to really test it out with Trent until this past weekend. And holy crap, I absolutely LOVE this lens. LOVE. The focal length is a little inconvenient, but it makes up for it in every single way. I love the quality, the speed, the creamy smoothness of the backgrounds, and how clean the images look. I'm just so thrilled with it.
Anyway, on to the pictures!
Just as I was complaining about how unseasonal my neighborhood looked, the leaves all began to fall.
Hey Trent, you have something stuck... all over your head
And posing, of course
And a stacked picture to end the day. The bad graffiti annoys me, but it was the best background I could find.
On the next day, we went for an afternoon walk to one of the nearby fields. Unfortunately it's also under construction, so we're enjoying it while it lasts.
More Fall-y pictures
Cute dog is cute
Annnnd, he's bored
...so he ran off the bridge and decided to go swimming in the mud.
"Crap, Mom doesn't look happy. Well, Mom likes it when I climb high places, right?"
Yes. Yes, I do <3
Later that evening, we headed out for pictures during my favorite time of the day. Hope everyone isn't feeling bored of these golden hour pictures!! I really wanted to test out the lens and wow - I love how it photographs light!
These first few are straight out of camera.
Spotted a groundhog
Sometimes I wonder if he's part pointer or hound
Ready to head home!

Feb. or March. i think i want a telephoto lens. i don't know
anything about cameras or lens. i have a Nikon D3100.
Great Photos! Why did you want the 85mm if you already have the 50mm? Did you notice similarities in the images? I have both but use the 85 primarily for headshots(people). I'm also using a FF body.
Great photos and beautiful dog!
I love the 85mm lens. I don't own it but I've rented it before :)
Love the photos.
Is that the Nikon 85, 1.8? I've been eying that one for a while.
