Portrait with Canon 7D and Canon lens 10-22mm

As I explained in this entry made in 2010 on this blog, I bought the Canon wide-angle EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM in order to complement, at that time, my two other lenses, the Canon 50mm f1.4 and the canon 24-105mm f4L (since that time, I also acquired the sharpest lens of all Canon lenses, one of the sharpest anyway, the Canon 135mm f2L).

And if I use it for panoramic views of landscape or buildings ( Suvarnabhumi airport ),  I also use it for doing some portrait photography and I quite enjoy this lens for that purpose actually. I’m talking about partial/full body portrait here, not face only portrait (although you can also do it but with sometimes unexpected, not to say funny, results). And being able to take such photos when you do not have much space.

For a start, here are the photos I posted before that show what I mean by taking a full body portrait when you do not have much distance to work with (except if you can fly).

And the same day, playing with girlfriend

And another one that I love, when the little kid was taken by surprise doing  I do not know what exactly actually.

Playing with small dogs in Mukdahan

The pictures posted above are not that recent, almost 2 years old, so here are much more recent ones, taken during our holidays in Europe last month. What do you do when you are in Europe and not in Thailand?

You watch TV, programs are not the same and language is not the same, feels pretty different, hence interesting when you are a young kid (or even when you are not that young anymore).

And you play “Dames” with your grandfather

And please, do not ask your dad to help you, I lost enough times against my father to know that it is the best way to learn how to win

OK, maybe I’m losing the game against my grandfather but I know I’m smart, or at least I look smart, especially when wearing my dad’s glasses

Do I look smart?

This concludes this entry but I can only encourage you to try the Canon 10-22mm for portrait, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
