I Had the opportunity to spend a few hours this morning at Venice Beach CA. Lucky for me there was a surf contest going, ( Venice Surf-A-Thon ), on and a bunch of great surfers out. Aside from that it was a clear day!
EQUIP USED –
CANON 7D – raw image format
70-300 L F4-5.6
IS mode 2 ( on lens barrel )
AF : AI SERVO
Man. Select- AF point expansion
Aperture F5.6, ISO 400 and shutter speeds between 3,200 – 5000
processed in photoshop
It was a fairly bright day, the time these shots were taken was between 10:30 and 11:45. I opted for ISO 400, to use higher shutter speeds. Metering mode was set to spot. I find that being able to go from, 200-300MM is important and I like the option of having a zoom lens. I am not sure how it would of worked with a prime. If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me a comment or email me.
