What makes me happy?

So, for Christmas I got a few things that I REALLY wanted.  I spoke of the big one in my last post which was a 50mm Lens. 
My precious 50mm ;0)
It was such a great gift.  I really can't thank my parents enough!! 

Also got my nifty lenspen! I love it! It cleans like a dream.

Love that I got a shutter remote! You just never know when you'll need it!

This one was really cheap and it works great so far.

Then last but not least, the Gary Fong Puffer

I had read a review for this and as I do not have the cash to put into the expensive stuff, I really wanted something to diffuse my onboard flash.

Here's my first experiment.

Without Puffer: 1/50, ISO 200, f 1/8

With the Puffer: same settings

I think that speaks for itself.  Anyhoo, it does not really help with the shock of the flash in someones face like a party bouncer does, nor does it reduce the pin light that the flash creates in a persons eyes,
but it is pretty nifty for inanimate objects.

Hope this was helpful to someone.  I had fun, I'm completely in love with my 50mm and what it can do inside with little light.  It makes me very happy!

Thanks for stopping in!
