Canon 5D Mark II, Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II lens, 1/6 sec at f/4, ISO 100

Saturday night I went out with a small group to do some Strobist-type photography at Utah Lake. When I go to these events I often just like to hang out and get some behind-the-scenes photos, so I brought along my “new to me” 24mm TS lens to get some practice with it before I take it on my trip to Moab in a few weeks. I’ve had the lens for a few months now but since I’ve been pretty obsessed with photographing food lately so I haven’t made the time to take it for a spin.

Another thing that I brought along was a cheapo graduated ND filter I picked up from Pictureline last week. I’ve always been curious about using them, but since I don’t do a lot of landscape photography I never had much use for one. Well, after using the cheapo version for a little bit, I was hooked and went online that night and bought a Singh-Ray 4×6″ 3-stop ND filter. I’m excited to use it and I expect that I’ll be getting some more of these in the future … maybe some with a little color added to them, perhaps? :)
