Going to be shooting a lot in the next 7 days

I have a shoot scheduled for Saturday morning, and I really wanted to do a good job this time, so I bit the bullet and rented a 50mm 1.4. It is supposed to arrive today, and I'll have it for a week. I'm So. Excited!

The shoot on Saturday is for the mom of the newborn that I shot back in November. She's now 6.5 months old - these are supposed to be 6 month shots. I'm also going to work in a shoot with my two kids and my brother's two kids in the hopes of getting something good to use for a mothers day/fathers day gift for our parents. And, finally, DD's 5th birthday is in less than a month, so I need to find time to try and get some birthday shots.

I'm so excited to get my hands on some good glass! We just paid off our car, so hopefully soon, I can get my own!

Man, I wish there was a rental place around here! I'd love to give some lenses a try!

Good luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you get!

Steph, there's no rental place locally to me - I checked. The closest is in Philly, which is 2 hours away. So, I rented online from www.borrowlenses.com .

Hmm...wonder if hubby would agree to that. He's always leery about online stuff, unless it's like Amazon or something. He doesn't even like ebay!
