Choosing the right lens for the occasion – Calgary Family Photographer

I just spent the past 4 consecutive days out at Canada Olympic Park.  For Christmas we hooked up our oldest son with a full snowboard setup and he was excited to learn how to slide on snow.  My son had so much fun and I was stoked to see watch him learn.  The only thing I didn’t like was all the wind on the hill!  So, after all the wind and early snow we’ve been getting this winter I thought I’d post an image from one of my summer sessions as a nice change of pace!

For portrait sessions I’m usually working with my trusty 70-200 2.8 IS lens.  I love the compression I can achieve and the lack of distortion.  But there are certain compositions where my ultrawide 16-35 is the better choice, like in the image below.  Center composition worked well in this image, especially with how the trees framed the couple and their kids while they were horsing around.
