Today is something new for the blog. A couple of close up macro shots of my two monkeys. I rented a Canon 100mm L macro lens a few weeks back for a wedding I was shooting and decided to have some fun using it around the house.
I don’t know about everyone else, but my kids are the toughest clients ever when it comes to taking their picture. At best they give me one shot and then run away. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to yell, threaten or bribe just to get a few brackets. The life of a photographer dad.
Regardless of their behavior I did get these two shots with the 100mm set for macro. The quality of this lens is amazing. It is tack sharp and has incredible bokeh (for the non-photog people that means its ability to blur the background). From the shots above you can see where the focus point was set and how fast it falls off. Incredible.
I have this lens on my buy list and will eventually own it. So in case you were wandering what to get me for Christmas, now you know. 😉
Until next time…
