A Look at Various Lenses in Action

Hey there!

This post today is coming at you as a follow up to the What’s in My Camera Bag post.

Several people asked to see what kind of shots each lens can produce, so I thought I’d post various images here labeled with the lens that took them so you can see the lens in action!

200

Canon 200mm 2.8

The Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L is my most used lens for outdoor sessions. To get a full subject into the frame, I do have to stand quite a bit back from them, though. Sometimes I’m standing as far back as 20-30 feet. But, I love the super smooth buttery bokeh this lens provides, so I’m willing to walk a bit for the shot!

85

Canon 85mm 1.8

The Canon 85mm f/1.8 is my second most used lens for outdoor sessions. I love the smoothness of the background, but I also love that I can stand closer to my subjects and still get them into the frame. (Although there is still a bit of distance necessary, just not quite as far from the subject as I have to stand with the 200.)

50

Canon 50mm 1.4

The Canon 50mm f/1.4 was my first love as far as lenses go. I think it’s probably my most versatile lens, as I enjoy using it both for outdoor images as well as indoors. Especially when shooting inside in an area where there isn’t much space for you to stand back away from your subject. This lens is super light weight so it’s not strenuous for me to hold, which makes it easier for me to remain steady.

28

Canon 28mm 1.8

The Canon 28mm f/1.8 is amazing for indoor shots when you need to fit more in the frame but are working with limited space. It’s also pretty good for shooting objects close up. (Not quite macro, but still lets you get in close.)

I find that if I get too close to a person when shooting with it, though, it can cause some wide angle distortion.

Another time I find myself using this lens is outdoors for really wide shots where I want to get a lot of the background in. It’s especially wonderful for silhouette shots as the sun is going down.

I love every single lens for different reasons, and they all have their own uses and benefits. 🙂

I sure hope this helps!
