Testing! One, two, three

I am not much interested in writing about technique, but this time I will. But I will keep it short! Yesterday at the races I tested an interesting lens. Canon zoom f100-400, 4,5-5,6. But as I guess that you noted you couldn´t tell if it was sharp or not in those images. Well, this isn´t much better since these images are 72 dpi and small. But anyway, Hemingway… The type of image is totally different.

I just went on a small walk close to our summerhouse since I think testcharts are SO boring. Useful of course but boring. I will happily let other people photograph those.

Test_MG_0946 Test_MG_0936I am not a birdwatcher but there they were. And I came so close. The camera is a EOS 1D Mk lV, so f 400 is really f 520. The close range i suberb! I like it very much and I think that if you are looking for this focal range this is a very good buy.

The race is on

Yesterday I made another attempt to cover a horserace at Täby Galopp. The weather was fine and the whole evening was great with many interesting horse events. Like barrel racing and shooting with a bow and arow from horseback. However I concentrated on the traditional races. Trying to capture the speed and color of the event. Easy, NO! Difficult to chose the right images that I think are the best. I´ll keep on experimenting, and I will see what will come out of it.

Well, I did it my way!
