Always excited to go outside, but rarely happy to have his photo taken. This is a shot of Murphy in the morning giving me the business for shoving a camera in his face.
Of course, I couldn’t help myself. I was testing out a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, rented for a portrait project which I will cover in a later post. Murphy is not one to sit idle, so there are few shots of him, unless lighting is great. Being able to stop down to f2.8 provides more light to work with, and the bokeh in the background is dreamy. The detail is fabulous, focal range is great, and focus is fast and spot on.
The only downside I can think of is the heft. Weighing in at 56.2oz or just under 3 and a half pounds, it is a great workout for a 3 hour walking shoot.
It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. ~ Ferris Bueller.
Wishing you all a happy Murphy-Cam!
