Holy flower power – I’ve fallen in love with my brand new camera lens! And what better way to show your significant camera gear some affection than to give it some flowers to photograph. LOL. These flowers were ‘pic’ed in my friend’s amazing garden using my brand new Canon EF 70-200 IS f/2.8 II lens with a Canon Extension Tube 25 II attached to provide a slightly greater magnification.
All these shots were taken handheld in relatively low light (around 20:00 EST in the evening) with no flash. My ISO ranged from 500 to 1600 to pull off a shutter speed of 1/400th of a second between an aperture range of 2.8 and 5.6 (depending on whether I was shooting into the sun). I have always loved Canon’s image stabilization technology, and without a question their new flagship 70-200 zoom lens really delivers big time in that regard. I’m just on my way to pic some more plants, but stay tuned for product reviews on my new Canon EF EF 70-200 IS f/2.8 II and other camera toys! These pictures are available for purchase, so thank you for respecting my copyright and your interest.
