lens me your eyes

i know i know, another photo to show off my crazy new lens. i don't have all the specs (50mm/1.8f EFS) but the general gist of it is this:

it takes great indoor photos without flash because it allows more light in.
it captures movement thanks to a fast shutter speed so you avoid blurry subjects.
it allows a maximum 1.4 f-stop which gives a really narrow depth of field. ie: backgrounds are really out of focus.
basically, you manually adjust aperture and it creates the proper exposure by adjusting the shutter speed.

so far i'm pretty happy with it. i haven't tried using it in any auto modes yet, i've been using it in my SLR Av program setting.

now i just want to test it on human subjects ;)

i have two perfect human subjects for you to try it out on, i'm just sayin' :)

i've been learning alot about shooting in Av mode, except when it came to changing the file type... that confused me for a bit but I figured it out with the Canon software. So much to learn!
