Test Driving A Lens With My Officer Escort
Late last week I decided to rent a pretty sweet lens. It’s Nikon’s 70-200mm f/2.8. This bad boy is pretty darn sexy. Except it’s HUGE. The evening I picked it up I was itching to just try it out. I bribed my older one into taking a walk with me down the street so I could snap a few test shots.
This is what happens when you tell him he can forego finishing his dinner and have a couple of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups instead
One SUPER cooperative 5yo!
He donned his Police hat and black leather jacket for the walk (Oh how I’ve missed this little officer!)
I got all kinds of cute, natural happy poses from him while I shot him from across the street and he watched for oncoming traffic for me
I believe this one’s called the zombie-walk
We made it down to our neighborhood controversial vintage Coca-Cola sign
He never complained once. That has never happened when I take him out just to photograph him
I am so grateful for days like these when he is just happy to be out with his mama. They get fewer and further apart as he gets older so I cherish them so. Of course I’m sure a lot of what put him in a great mood was the knowledge that he’d get chocolate treats instead of having to finish dinner when we got home
So now I know what to use as leverage when I really want to get some great shots of him!
