First outing

By tazisdylan
This was the first real test shot I have had the chance to take with the new camera and lens.

Happish with it - nothing knock out, but please with the f1.4 fall off.

C&C welcome

Nice camera Wink I love my 7D. Such a versatile camera. Shooting a wedding with it as my main camera this weekend! With the 1.4, you can negate a little of the depth of field you lose with it not being full framed and this shot proves it. Superbly moody, great tension and drama, gritty and well shot. I have to get the 1.4.....only got the 1.8 myself and it's "nice", but that's about it.....does a job....

Thanks JB. This guy is a friend/work colleague and I think the features of his face lend well to B&W. Have another one to post.

I am looking forward to using the 7d on a model shoot at the start of Oct with a regular - hopefully by that time I would have got used to where everything is!

I struck the balance with the 1.4 pricewise as opposed to the very nice but very expensive 1.2! I do miss not having an off camera flash anymore. But funds don't allow me to get a replacement yet. :-(

As always, appreciate a comment from your good self.

The 1.4 is nearly almost as good as the 1.2......I wouldn't worry! Wink And the 7D is a little confusing at first but won't take long Smile Look forward to the results of the model shoot. And OCF is good when you have it but it just means you have to get more creative with available Wink Good luck and have fun! Smile
