Along with the Zeiss glass of my previous 2 posts I bought myself a Canon 135mm f/2.0 L lens on Ebay last weekend. Here are four of my first shots taken with it. All the pictures were shot on my Pocket Wizard creative workshops earlier this week. I shot them hand held and used central zone AF with a focus and re-frame technique.
The above shot was lit with a 580EX2 Speedlight firing into a Kood silver brolly clamped to the bridge structure using an Arri Magic Arm and Super Clamp. The backlight was provided by a 580EX2 Speedlight on a Lastolite stand. Both flashes were triggered by Pocket Wizard TTL units.
The above shot was lit with a 580EX2 high on a Lastolite stand from the front with a Honl CTO gel and a 430EX2 (in shot) from behind with a Honl 1/4″ grid and a CTB gel.
I lit the above shot with a barefaced, zoomed in 580EX2 attached to a Lastolite stand with a Lovegrove Flash Bracket. The flash was triggered with the Pocket Wizard TTL system just like the other shots here. Note the shape of the out of focus highlights on this wide open shot. ‘Rugby balls’ at the edge of the frame.
The above shot is my ‘student art’ shot on the 135mm lens. Shame it’s not pin sharp.
Please feel free to comment on the pictures, Damien.
