My name is Sandra, but you can call me Soyeon. And one of my "internet/social media names" is Yoosanchu. I live in a small place in Finland (but my first language is Swedish cuz I'm awesome). I'm studying in the third year of fashion/clothing design. In the future I hope I'll move to a bigger city. My blog is partly about my daily life as a 19 year old, but since I find that too boring, I mostly write about fashion, kpop, cute and creative things and everything that inspires me. My style and inspiration comes mostly from East Asia. As you see, I'm very interested in South Korea and Japan's fashion and culture, and their popculture such as kpop, k-dramas and anime.
I hope you'll enjoy my blog!

.:~REVIEW: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM~:.

My new camera lens arrived today!  I ordered it last week and they shipped it on friday. I was so afraid it would't arrive on time until I go to Stockholm. I'm going to Stockholm from 8-10 april with Ida and Mickis from my class, and I want to shoot photos with this lens while we're there!

Anyway, let's talk about the lens. This one is called Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM  I've been wanting a 50mm lens for a really long time, and this lens was honestly the best decision I ever could've made. The price was about 130€, which is very cheap for a good quality lens like this. No wonder why it's so popular. I haven't had much time to try it out yet, but as far as I've tested it, it's pretty much like I wanted. I have read tons of reviews of this lens too and almost everyone seemed to like it. image

The reason I wanted a lens with an aperture of 1.8 is basically so I can take better outfit photos, and photos for my blog etc. A large aperture (e.g 1.8) creates a shorter depth of field, you know when the background is blurry and the subject stands out in the photo. Which is exactly the effect I'm looking for.

My other two lenses have an aperture of max 3.5, and 3.5 doesn't make the background as blurry as 1.8 does. It's kind of hard to understand and to explain this but I hope you get what I mean.

It's a little bit annoying tho that I have to stand further away from the object I'm photographing, than I would have to do with my other lenses, cause this one isn't a zoom lens. But I'll get used to it.

Look at the comparison between these two: The 50mm one is so tiny. ^^

Overall: 4½/5

I'm sorry I didn't include any sample photos in this post, cause I haven't taken that many photos with the lens yet, but just wait til next time!
