Coupling two of my loves, cycling and photography. With my true love, Goddess.
Goddess and I headed out to the forest on a gorgeous autumn day, not only to enjoy the day, but so I could test out my new tool, a Canon EF 28/1.8. I had received it about a week prior, but with work, I just hadn’t had a chance to test it out.
Testing is important with any new lens. Especially this one, since reviews were a mixed bag. Some had proclaimed it a great lens, others proclaimed it was useless. Others said it was good once it was sent in to Canon and re-calibrated. All of these reviews were from serious amateurs and professionals.
So I took several dozen test shots with the new lens. And played with a few different photographic techniques. The bikes were the subject of the new technique (btw, these were NOT shot with the 28/2.8, but with the 100/2.8).
Mine (his) is a daily commuter with close to 3,000 miles on it over over the past 15 months. Goddess rides hers whenever she feels the desire.
And with a gazillion miles of dedicated bike trails here in Germany, how can one not feel the desire?
p.s. The verdict on the 28/1.8? Great! Not only with shots here in the forest, but at a Halloween party later that evening.
