I'm planning to buy a new lens for my camera -- one that has a low f-stop. The new lens is a 50mm lens that goes all the way down to f/1.8. My current lens only goes to f/4.5, which isn't low enough to get close-ups with really blurry backgrounds. In anticipation of the new lens, I took some shots of Libbie using my current lens on it's lowest f-stop.
Libbie is such a great model! She's much more patient than my girls and she's obedient, too. Plus, she never fakes a smile or tries to look like a princess. I appreciate that. Here are a few of the shots I took yesterday while she was alternately napping and staring out the window of the loft. The chair that she's lying in is the only piece of furniture she's allowed on. She loves to lie there in the afternoon sun while the girls sleep.
