A young girl learns to shoot a bow under the supervision of her grandfather.
Need a clean background? Position your subject at a high elevation and shoot from below them. A telephoto focal length eliminates some of the negative perspective distortion such a shooting position has the potential to create.
For this image, I could have backed to nearly twice the shooting distance and used 200mm instead of 100mm, but the background started creeping into the base of my image. The 100mm focal length placed me just far enough away from the carbon fiber arrow that cute little bow is firing to be safe.
I used a circular polarizer filter for this photo.

Track Athlete Track Athlete

A runner comes down the straightaway at a lightly-attended track meet.
There is a reason this event was lightly attended - it was very cold and windy. Part of photography involves being prepared for the conditions you will be shooting in.
The subject is in motion, therefore AI Servo AF mode was the right choice.

200mm  f/2.8  1/1600s  ISO 250
Bundled Up Bundled Up

Bright clothes frame the face and snow on the ground provides fill light for this winter sample picture. When working close with a telephoto lens and wide aperture, make sure that neither you or the subject moves after focusing. There is not much depth of field to work with in this shot.

West Manhattan Skyline West Manhattan Skyline

Hamilton Park in Weehawken New Jersey is a great location to view and photograph the west Mahanttan skyline from. This image is a crop from an even larger panorama image I created.
I did not need the f/5.6 aperture for depth of field, but this aperture gave me a longer exposure to better-blur the water and reduce vignetting which can be troublesome in the final stitched image.

95mm  f/5.6  3.2s  ISO 100
Golden Hat Retriever Golden Hat Retriever

A handy use for the family pet is retrieving hats that blew off while sledding.
Photographing moving dogs can be challenging. Make sure that you are using AI Servo AF mode and have a focus point locked onto the closest eye.

Radiused Action Photography Radiused Action Photography

Not all fast-moving action is challenging for a camera and lens' AF system to track. In this case, the horse and rider are circling me. The subject distance is remaining the same regardless of how fast the action is moving.
The 5D III and Tamron 70-200 VC are good for far more challenging subjects, but if what you have to work with is not the fastest and most-accurate available, position yourself to catch the action moving side-to-side.

Happiness is Sledding Happiness is Sledding

That title probably needs qualified, but ... this girl is definitely showing signs of sledding happiness.

Violin Recital and Stage Violin Recital and Stage

The vignetting of the stage lights combines with the vignetting of this lens at f/2.8 to create a strongly center-lit image of a young violin performer and her accompanist.
If you can get access to the venue during warmups or dress rehearsals, you have much more freedom to get the shots you really want. And then you can just sit and watch the actual event.
