The holiday season always seems to give great lasting memories and photo opportunities. Yesterday I attended the annual Christmas Pageant at our church and was not disappointed with the wonderful images that came out of it. In this shot a friend of mine was showing the candle to her grandson near the end of the service. The Canon 5D Mk 3 and the 24-70 f2.8 were a great combination for this event and gave me some really nice images at 5000 ISO. This shot was made a 1/30 sec at f2.8 and I was amazed at everything about it.
This photo was made at the same event as the one above and amazed me just as much. The new IS technology just blows me away. This image was made using the new Canon 70-200 f2.8 ll IS. The ISO was set at 4000 and the image was made at 1/15 sec. at 2.8. The woman's eye is tack sharp. Wow!
