After dropping off Noah (so he could go to work and make some money), Sophie and I headed back to my place.
I got notification that my new lens had arrived so I dragged mini Soph to open it with me.
Speedy was excited, too.
My new lens is the 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM. I haven’t shot with a short lens since I was maybe 13 years old (I went from 18-55mm, to 75-300mm, to telephoto 70-200mm). I’ve never shot with wide range lens, I didn’t truly see how wide the lens was until I took it out to Chagrin Falls and tested it out.
I had the same struggle as I did that morning with the lighting. Light is never on my side.
One of my favorite things about Chagrin Falls is the abandoned factory down the road. I’m too afraid to break in (I am a Good Citizen ™), but it’s still a pretty view from the road.
I’ve never been able to take full body shots, I’ve never really been able to focus on everything around us since my go-to lens has always been my telephoto zoom. I’m excited to practice.
Definitely made Sophie sit in a bush.
Had to try out that f/2.8.
More of Sophie sitting in foliage.
Sat down in the shade to get out of the (then) 93 degree heat.
