Engagement shoot
« on: November 15, 2012, 05:53:46 PM »
A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to do an engagement shoot with in the late afternoon UK sun (yes the sun does shine here). Although I have had the 5D MK iii since March, I still love and really appreciate using it - especially the accuracy of the focussing and the exceptional low light performance, not that I made use of the latter for this shoot. Here is a set of images, which I think are my best engagement shoot images yet, all shot with the 5D Mk iii and a 70-200mm F2.8L IS lens. All with natural light except for the final one:

Very nice shots. Since you are getting compression from the long lens, what aperature are you shooting in? I'm guessing at least 5.6 for most of these?

Except for the fact that he has a version I of the 70-200. ;)  (Still nice combo - no flames please.)
