I’m about to begin three days of St. Patrick’s Day gigs with the band so a music oriented shot seems appropriate. This one was taken recently at a local Irish seisiún. The lighting was very dim so I put on a fast prime lens and set my ISO to “Auto” with a max range of 12800.
Lens: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8. 1/320 at f/2.0, ISO 12800.

The Naked Ladies (amaryllis beladona) are in full bloom in Sonoma County. I took these shots of the fragrant pink beauties that were situated along a stone wall adjacent to the Julia Morgan house in my last post.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105 f/4L.

With me and the 5D Mark III’s full-frame sensor it’s all a crap shoot, but I’m learning by going where I have to go. For the time being, depth of field is the challenge.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L.
1st shot: lens at 105mm, 1/250 second at f/4.5, ISO 100.
2nd shot: lens at 58mm, 1/1600 second at f/4.5, ISO 500.

We’ve got a nice first bloom of roses this year. What more can I say?
Lens: Canon EFS 15-85 (with EF 12 II extension tube) at 85mm. 1/80 at f/5.6, ISO 200.

I play in a band so I spend a fair amount of time at local venues. Occasionally, I have time to pull out my camera and grab a few shots. This one is of my musician friend Renee’s ear–and pink hair. Though I haven’t used it much, I love the bokeh this lens makes.
Lens: Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM.
