Lens Hire

Hi all

Today I've been trying out a lens that I haven't used before. 

It's a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM. 

It's a monster of a lens, weighing well over two pounds.  I've actually hired it from Lenses For Hire for seven days.  The reason for hiring in the first place is to use for a wedding shoot I have this Friday.  It's a costly lens, so hiring it is a great way to test it out to determine whether it will be worth purchasing.  I have been taking shots of my son in a bid to get used to what it can do.  I love it.  So here are a couple of shots I've taken of my son.

I love black and white shots, but I've used an action from The Coffee Shop.   I have some more testing to do before Friday, but I'm pleased with the result so far.

If you would like to try out any lenses, I can thoroughly recommend the excellent service from Lenses For Hire.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Great photo! I enjoy shooting in b&w, as it evokes a certain atmosphere. I've taken some amazing candid portraits (my fav hobby) with a similar lens, without intimidating anyone. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
