We’re continuing our lens series with a look at the Canon 100mm 2.8. This is the least used lens we have; we only use it for about 5% of our wedding day! However, it’s a lens we don’t like to be without. This lens is a macro lens, meaning it can be used to clearly photograph small items. And for us, that means the wedding rings and jewelry! These jewels bring so much sparkle and shine to our galleries, and they are often the most sentimental pieces a bride has. That’s why we love using the 100mm lens to get up close and really show off the bling! One word of warning if you are considering purchasing this lens: it’s a little tricky to use. Our preferred method is to set our ISO high enough to allow for a high F-stop, like in the 9-11 range. If we don’t use that high of a number, only a very small sliver of our photo would be in focus. Then, we manually focus on a ring’s prong, hold our breath, and shoot! It can take a few tries to get a sharp photo, but it’s always worth the extra time. Here are some ring shots we’ve gotten with the Canon 100mm lens!
