Silvester: Four Days, Four Lenses

2011-01-04 19:00:29

During the new year holidays I had again the opportunity to play around with all four of my lenses. I one day want to post the best shots for each of them, but for now I'll simply try to find the best ones of the last four days, should be easy enough :)

Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS

This is actually my lens for surf photos (and i've done plenty of those) - It is perfect for photographing any kind of sport - but somehow I wasn't able to get really great snowboarding/skiing shots - The day wasn't perfect, 1/800 is probably too slow and you might not want to overexpose the pictures :( (I usually do this for surfing shots to get more details in the faces of the surfers, since the white of the waves would lead to an underexposed face.. but i guess when shooting snow you need more details in the white areas)

Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro

This is my newest addition to my collection of lenses. I still need to get a hang on how to really make use of it, but I simply put it on during a walk and got a few nice shots. I still needed to force myself not to put on my Wide Angle Lens though :)

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

This was my first quality lens and if you ever have to limit yourself to one lens, this would probably be the one. I really made nice style-photos while skiing. Equipped with a Polarizer Filter it's probably the best thing for shooting snow.

Sigma AF 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM

I have to admit this is my favorite lens right now :) Perfect for shooting against the sun, perfect for sceneries, perfect for parties (always a nice perspective, and doesn't look like a point and shoot camera - quite hard for the flash though).

Hey, we have Signatures !!! Great, isn't it ? ;)
