I recently jumped into the DSLR market and bought a Nikon D90. I have been extremely happy with both the D90 and the 18-105mm lens that came with it. After spending quite a bit of time testing out my new gear, my photographer friend suggested I try out his 50mm lens. I am very much an amateur photographer, and had no idea the difference in tone you can create with a simple lens switch. I was amazed at the results. I have always loved rich still life photography with a very shallow depth of field. With the 50mm I was able to achieve that soft style I have always admired. The photos below are what came out of the experiment with the 50mm. I was quite happy with how they turned out. The full set is viewable on my flickr photostream.
