Yellows and Greens of Spring

Relates to Photography

Took a quick lunch break to give my new Canon 200mm f/2.8 L prime lens a test drive in the garden. The daffodils that are starting to bloom made the perfect subjects for a yellow and green photo shoot to herald in the Spring.

f/2.8 @ 1/6400s

f/6.3 @ 1/1000s

f/2.8 @ 1/8000s

f/2.8 @ 1/3200s

I accidentally shot these photos at an ISO of 800 making the bokeh a little grainy. But that also provided super fast shutter speeds to compensate for the wind (affecting both the plants movements and my control of the lens). It was only when I got the photos on the big screen that I realised how incredibly amazing the quality of the pictures this 200mm L-lens takes. Unfortunately it also really bought home the inadequacies of the Canon 40D viewfinder which seems to struggle with yellows and provides misleading quality due to its low screen resolution. A small price to pay really with the freedom to shoot large numbers of exposures on digital film.
