Well....

I ordered my flash today. Little too late for the job I have tonight but I'll be prepared NEXT time!! I found a nicely reviewed Sony flash and seems to be in good workin order for all that used it and it's so compact you can keep it on your camera 'permanently'...it folds down and up and you can do bounce flash on it as well. So hopefully it's what I'm needing!


And then I picked a used one of these up...

For....guess..............................SIXTY BUCKS! I was gonna get an 85 prime from sony which was like 250 but today I got the flash and lens for like 140! The lens is so cheap bc it's a Minolta lens, which is what Sony USED to be..well Sony bought out Minolta and adoped their A-mount lens system so therefore minolta lenses still fit all Sony DSLRS but you get them cheap because a LOT are discontinued...soo Minolta is famous for it's vivid color and sharpness so I REALLY hope I made the right choice. If you all know anything about this lens (Minolta Maxxum AF 28-85mm) then please share some images taken with one or tell me about it! Thanks and yay for taking a forced step forward! :-)

And oh yes...if you haven't noticed my challenge this week..it's "CARVING" so go to the link at the top of the blog and ENTER PEOPLE!! Have a happy FRIDAY!

Yes! I have a homecoming crowning to cover tonight and its inside the cafeteria...hence we're probably lookin at flourescent lighting (BOO!) All i have is my stock flash and i HOPE HOPE HOPE that maybe it will surprise me and be all nice and bright and well-lit..(HAHAHA prolly not) but i can dream :-) SOOOO i totally realized I NEED an external flash..and sooo i searched for HOURS today reading review after review then FINALLY came across this baby..its lightweight and compact and when folded down it shuts off and when opened it kicks on and is TTL and has great reviews and normally sells for $130 but I got a steal for $87!! So I was happy!

Thanks. I just got super lucket. that's the only lens i found A-1 condition for that price..plus the flash came from some online electronics store that had them discounted like forty bucks! so i got both for a like a hundred bucks less than i woulda paid for just the 85 prime lens
