4th of July – new lens and new bikes :)

This year 4th of July was very exciting - not only because I got to try new lens (24 1.4 II) but because we bought two coolest retro bikes! yay! OK, first things first: I wanted to get something faster than 2.8, that’s why I bought 24mm 1.4 II, and I love it already. It’s super sharp, love the “natural vignetting”, and wide angle is wide enough for me:)

Now about the bikes… Me and Kamila decided that once we get US visas again, we’re going to buy bikes so we can stay healthy;)So here we go, we bought those beauties on Saturday and enjoying riding them every day so far:)We rode them for 4th of July parade to the city we live in, and because they’re city bikes we were cruising around the city after the parade:)

All pictures above were taken with available light, but I’m sure you can see that looking at those ugly shadows:)

After ice creams (low fat:)) we drove to park, and I took my strobist stuff of the trunk, so I could better control the light and shadows… It was so bright, even though I crank my ISO down to 50 (low) it was too bright to use my pocket wizards (sync speed over 200). So I took my FlashZebra cord and used E-TTL with Lastolite 24″ softbox camera left high.

This one below is taken with 24mm @ 1.4 (of course):

And here a picture to prove that I know how to use (not overuse) Photoshop, and make my pictures look cool and retro!

Mama - Super bryki, właśnie oglądamy z Hanką!
Komentarz Hani: “Pani nie ma kaś”. Tak więc wiecie – retro retrem ale bezpieczeństwo przede wszystkim! Może jakieś orzeszki ;)
