Santa Ana Heritage Museum Photo Shoot

I had the opportunity to attend a Photo Shoot’n’Meet at the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana, Ca. The museum is just as I remembered it when I was in grade school and my 4th grade class went there for a field trip. I love the trip down memory lane, it reminded me of a simpler time when my biggest concerns was getting a  red ball for dodge-ball during recess and hurrying up home after school to watch Gargoyles on TV.

I decided to challenge myself and try to use only 1 lens for my shoot, giving me the perfect time to use the new lens I purchased. I always want to very acclimated with my equipment so when I use it for weddings or engagements I already know what to expect from the lens before I see the image in my camera’s viewfinder.  Here are some pics with my new lens/toy:

    Paul, Thank you for the compliment. I’m loving my new site. I”m glad it’s a blogsite, rather than site +blog. I got my template from Portfolio Sitez, I was a lil overwhelm at first but the CS is great and I was able to do everything myself once I got the hang of it.

    Luis–how do you like your new site? Very nice pictures.

    Thanks Daniel, I bought the Nikon 35mm f/1.8

    The images look great, seriously. So what lens did you get yourself? I’m guessing a prime of some kind. 50mm maybe?
