New toys

Got some new toys yesterday. I've been wanting to shoot some photos with more lighting setup than just a single flash pointed at the subject. I finally ordered a Canon ST-E2 (remote control for my flashes) and a Canon 420EX flash so that I can set one flash on either side of the camera and get more dynamic lighting (instead of such flat lighting) on the subjects. I also picked up a like new Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 lens. I hooked all this up last night and here's a photo that I got. It's still not completely "in focus" because the plane of focus is incredibly shallow. Even with only having my daughter's bangs in the plane of focus, this lens is so sharp it made a wonderful photo with a crappy background

Thanks for reading,
