My little Boy’s 1st Time Ice Skating

So Dad here you go got a brand spanking new 70-200 mm f 2.8 Canon Lens, and one of your dearest goes on an epic first skate…….yeah yeah the pressure builds… am i going to keep this heavy beast still while hand golding it, how do i get a fast enough shutter-speed to avoid blur while we are indoor and flash is no use because of distance…..

so the answer is trial and error…get to know your equipment… all takes time and understanding. Oh yeah and start to time your breathing…..breath in……hold it….now dont move……”click” ok and your allowed to gasp for air again! a bit like that!

at first it didnt go too well, but in the end and often a 1000 Iso all went down ok’ish. Appologies there are some other test shots mixed up i did in the afternoon……sweet stuff this lens and mind you it was heavily overcast today!

  1. Some great shots there Marco! Did you get the IS version or the non-IS one? I love my 70-200 mm (I do have the IS one) and I use it all the time. In fact I think it’s probably the lens I use most besides my 100mm macro. It’s incredibly sharp and well, I never use a tripod with this one so all handheld, but yes, the shutterspeed needs to be watched!
