I borrowed 50mm lens from my friend and tried few photos at home. This is one of them. Later will go shooting outdoors.

Not sure what you want as a response here. As a test shot of a lens, it's OK, but the background blur is still identifiable and thus a distraction. To get an image with some impact, you needed some stronger directional lighting. Don't over do the wide aperture stuff. There seems to be a fad for wide aperture 50 mm lenses and it's not always the way to go.

You can see what a nice lens this is, so practice getting some bright areas in the soft area for some nice bokeh effects. Watch your speed too, - this shutter speed is borderline for hand held. Remember the minimum speed calculation, min speed = 1/(focal length * crop factor) so for this its 1/(50 * 1.6) - 1/80.

Also dont forget to change the colour profile to sRGB for the web, - this is ProPhoto. Loaded a quick mod.
