New Lens and a New Bag

After taking an Intro. to Digital Photography class this summer, I've been using my camera more (and exclusively in manual mode!) and have been wanting to buy a new lens. So, after much searching around, reading of reviews etc. I stopped into my local camera shop and just bought what they recommended. I am soooo happy with my new lens and thought I'd share some of my candid photos.

I am so in love with this lens, I can't say it enough. And, a new, larger, heavier lens, needs a new camera bag! I've been meaning to do this for a while, and this was just the kick in the pants I needed. I made the insert for the bag using this tutorial from Lil Blue Boo.

This cute, $30 Target purse is the new home of my camera and all my lenses.


  1. The photos are gorgeous, all of them! Was the class an online class or something locally for you?

  2. did you add these dividers!? fabulous.

  3. Beautiful photos! I got the same lens for Mother's Day, I can't wait to learn how to use it to it's full potential. I actually just ordered the "Say No To Auto" E-Book last night in preparation for taking the leap. I love your camera bag! Very chic!

  4. did you put those inserts in the bag or did it come like that??
