Oscoda: Prime & Wide

We went up north last weekend for what might have been our last trip of the year. I decided to only shoot with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 during the day. Something that not only forced me to shoot prime, but also forced me to shoot something other than cannabis with my 100mm lens.

Once night fell, I threw the Sigma 10-20mm on to take a stab at photographing the Milky Way with my new Canon 70D for the first time. I had a few beers throughout the day, so I wasn’t in tip top shape to be walking around in the dark with my camera on the tripod. While I am happy with the outcome, I could have done better.

I also messed around with back button focusing, something that I found out about a week or so before the trip. I need to play around with it more, but for continuous focusing/panning situations, I like it a lot!
