Canon 5D Mark III – My first photo


24-105mm@35mm  |  F5.6  |  1/200th s  |  ISO 100

Nothing really special about this shot, just that it was my first real shot with my 5Diii when I took it out last Saturday. Just playing around with it. I sort of like the convergence of lines here and thought it worked well in black & white. In the right frame I bet it would look pretty cool. Hope you like it.

    it seems like just the other day when you had new gear. and here we are again. i find the 61-points overwhelming, and my fingers redden and peel after a good long session. i see you got the lens that sold with it. i got the pancake one – and already had the 24-70.

    • I know, it’s only been 3 1/2 years since I started with the old Panasonic point & shoot. I had a showing at a restaurant in September and sold four prints.
      Yeah, all those focus points is a bit much.
      I’m sorta regretting not getting the 24-70 F2.8 now, to be honest. The F4 isn’t fast enough for indoors, I find. It’s also not as sharp as my Tamron 17-50 F2.8. I might pick up a Tamron 24-70 F2.8 image stabilized lens down the road. I did pick up a 50mm F1.4 but haven’t used it much at all.
      A couple more things I thought of with the camera:
      If you shoot from the hip much, like I do, you can have the camera place the focus point in the shot. It doesn’t transfer over when you export the photo to the computer, it only shows up on the camera’s display. The value is you can see what the camera focused on after you’ve shot from the hip. The only downside is the red dot focus point is anchored to the camera’s focus point, meaning that if you focus on someone’s eye and then recompose, the dot will moved with the focus point and not stay on trhe person’s eye.
      I also set the camera’s viewfinder level feature to the DOF button on the front of the camera so if I want to see the level in my viewfinder I only have to press that DOP button and it comes up.

        hm…i don’t shoot from the hip much… i think that might take practice. the 24-70 makes my camera so heavy, i don’t want to take it out to play. the STM lens makes it a joy to carry around. both are at F2.8, so i’ve enjoyed the low lighting shots, which always surprises me (smile).
