Day 9 PDYP Project: Canon 100mm f/2.8

So today, the challenge was challenging. After loving the Sigma 24mm f/1.4, and the tried and trusty Canon 50mm f/1.4, the Canon 100mm f/2.8 was difficult to use for pics of a small person in a darkening living room. Too close! Too dark?! I had also been lazy and left the batteries in the flash and they seemed drained and slow to react so the first set had a bunch that were just total darkness. A battery change improved things. Also, on a side note, with the Canon 6D (using Aperture Priority) and with the Canon Speedlite 430II Flash, I set exposure compensation to +2/3 or else it's just really all too dark. Then in Lightroom I'm generally moving exposure up even more.

Shot with a Canon 6DCanon Speedlite 430II Flash and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens.

Anyway, the top shot of the night:

And who can resist little toes?:
