Shot these with the Mrs’ Nikon D40 and the cheap awesome 35mm nikon 1.8 prime lens I got her for her birthday.  You can find it here. The beauty of a 35mm prime lens this fast is that you can isolate your subjects and throw the background out of focus.  They also perform super well in low light.  With the kit lens that shipped with her D40 I would have had to use the flash and the photos would have had all that blown out whitewashed look to them-UGLY.  Not using the flash with the kit lens would have produced blurry out of focus photos as well.  Love manually focusing with these, makes photography fun!   Every enthusiast photographer that has a dslr or interchangeable lens camera should own a fast 35mm prime.
