Forgotten Steps - San Jose, California, USA

Canon 50D w/ Tamron 14mm f 2.8 (Hand held)

 

This group of captures was more of a test to check how well I could get shots to come out using the 14mm lens (effectively 22mm on this body) in almost darkness being hand held. I was also checking to see how much depth of field I could get at f2.8. None of these shots are razor sharp but that is to be expected shooting hand held 20 minutes after sunset in a shady area. I think they all came out fairly good under the conditions.

 

Now that the rain has showed up. I think I will go back to this park and see if there is any more color in the foliage and more water in the streams. Stay tuned for those shots to come. I also upgraded to a 5D mark2 and got a few new lenses so I think a better version is on its way :-)

 

Enjoy :-)
