Outside doggy photoshoots are at all times a bit hit and miss – the freezing, horizontal sleet we have endured over the previous couple of days didn’t bode nicely for Thursday’s photoshoot with 5 canines on Tynemouth Seaside! Amazingly although, the day dawned crisp, recent and sunny and I dug out my sun shades and warmest fleece.
With actually brilliant, low winter sunshine, there’s little or no to be gained from utilizing speedlights – they simply can not compete with the solar (particularly when the topics are fast-moving and unpredictable!). So out got here the 70-200mm f2.8 VR lens. It is a monster and weighs a ton – a lot in order that I’ve virtually stopped utilizing it at weddings and had been contemplating eliminating it and shopping for a light-weight 85mm f1.8 prime, however after yesterday, I believe I will hold onto it is slightly longer.
Anyway, this is not a lens evaluate – convey on the canines!!
