Make hay . . .

. . . while the sun shines, which is figuratively what I did when I saw some January-like weather outside my window yesterday morning. For a few brief hours, the gloomiest time of year here looked like the brightest. It afforded a chance to see what the RF 16mm can do in good light, which is capture some very satisfying images. Once DPP Express straightens the curves, that is. This lens didn’t miss being a fisheye by much!

Decent weather continued through the day, giving me a chance to test an EF 200mm f/2.8 that I stumbled across in a shop window yesterday morning. Although the 135mm appears to remain supreme at obliterating backgrounds, the 200mm’s wide-open sharpness will make it a valuable tool for capturing images. It appears to be utterly fantastic at isolating the main subject while maintaining rather appealing contextual background. Depending on subject matter, of course . . .

More experimentation is required, though, and will be gleefully executed!
