Practice with the new lens

April 7, 2008

I finally got the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens and I am having fun practicing with it, but at the same time feel a bit self conscious with it. You really tend to stick out in a crowd with a lens that size. I’ve had several questions asking if I’m a professional photographer. To which, I promptly answer no, I just love photography.

Freestyle Motocross
I got to take some shots at the Freestyle Motocross event several weeks ago. That was fun to try to shoot, because I wasn’t even supposed to have the camera. That was also my first real experience with playing with shutter priority and trying to get the exposure vs. lighting correct. I sort of figured it out by the end of the show!

Roc the Runway Fashion Show
This past weekend, I took some photos at Roc the Runway fashion show at Roanoke College. I was pretty lazy about it – I was there to watch the show and thought I would take a few snaps for practice. Overall, not the greatest, because I didn’t leave my seat, but I got a couple decent shots.
