Someone Got All the Photogenic Genes - Prom 2012

This weekend was my sister's prom. She was very excited. I was very excited. I was excited because I have a new lens that I really wanted to try out. It's a Nikon 35 mm 1.8 prime lens. So far I really like it! I wasn't able to really give her as much exercise as I would have liked too because everyone was all antsy to get going but I was able to stretch her legs a little, and I liked what I saw. This little lens is on my camera to stay.

1/125 5.6 ISO 400

I love photos with greens and yellows in the background. If I had been thinking properly I would have stopped down to really get that nice bokeh in the background.

 This picture I got dangerously close to having branches coming out from her head. There's nothing I hate more than a really ugly/busy background.

SOOC. Is it possible for this girl to take a bad picture?! We tried..

She still doesn't look bad. Wish I was this photogenic! Props to my sister for being a great sport.
