This morning, when I had taken my boys to school and kindergarten I was greeted with much sunlight, such bright I needed to put some sunglasses on. Wow! Anyway, see how the trees are nicely frosted. :)
This photo was also shot with the same Super Carenar lens I used to immortalize the Crack Willow in the previous entry. I'll need to shoot this one again, so that I'll have a full image, since I had to cheat a bit and crop this one. (My fingers were frozen so I shot it from the car.) Tomorrow morning I'll be sure to wear mittens so I can do a walking crop. ;)
I think I'm definitely putting the lens through its paces, and I feel like I'm learning. At least I am already a bit more confident using it. I got some good ideas from a Sony mirrorless photographer I met Yesterday at Miro's pre-school friend's birthday party, and with him showing me how he shoots manual lenses on his camera, I realized I can use the Focus Peaking feature on the Magic Lantern software to do focusing much faster than I had previously been able to. I wonder if Sony took the focus peaking idea from Magic Lantern or other way around.
Anyway, here's the photo:
The pier, some frosty trees and boats
Body: Canon EOS 550D Lens: Super Carenar MC ƒ=35mm 1:2.8 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: ƒ/11 ISO: Dual-ISO 100+200
I still need to edit the last photo in the set, but I guess I can manage to upload it before the tomorrow's deadline.
