I’m in the middle of my week off. Prior to this, I tried to book some shoots and leave myself time to do a few things around the house as well. About 3 weeks ago I spoke to a girl who needed some pictures done outdoors. She is also a photographer. Needless to say, I knew this could work out pretty good.
I met Janelle at Starbucks, we loaded her things into my SUV and on we went. I had to go my the studio for a minute then we rode to a few places. She, as a photographer had already seen a few things around that caught her eye. So we made them work for us. She had her own ideas for the shoot. That did me favors. I broke out the new 5D Canon and put in the 70-200 f/4. I shot with that for the majority of the day. It worked really good. When I shot with the 50mm f/1.4, the bokeh was terrific. Moving from the 30D to the 5D probably shouldn’t have made as much of a difference as it did, but it seems that everything I have shot with it came straight out of camera with more depth than before and the white balance was spot on. Oddly enough, when I had sent the 30D in for service, they didn’t indicate anything was wrong with it. The image below had a basic, minor level adjustment and I played with skin tones just a bit. Otherwise, I’m a happy camper that it worked out as good as it did. I’ve got 2 shoots tomorrow 4/6 and did one last night, so I’m sure I’ll have more good work to put on here soon.
