So tonight I had the opportunity to test out a new 24-105L on my T2i photographing my 22 month old son scurrying about our living room. No flash, just a corner floor lamp and 4 compact fluorescent blubs from the ceiling fan overhead (room is approximately 18x20).
I shot about 25 images, all at f/4 with ISO between 1600 and 3200 and shutter between 1/50 to 1/15 at varying focal lengths (mainly 60-100mm though). Almost all came out blurry as he was rapidly darting around the room, or standing up, looking around, etc.
A flash (probably 580ex II) is on the short list for the upcoming winter imposed indoor shooting months, but that aside; should I be looking at a different (faster) lens for this application? Most of what I was shooting was headshot/upper body shots with a few full bodies thrown in - so maybe a EF 85mm f/1.8 would make sense?
It was much easier shooting him with the kit 18-55 and built in flash last year when he was still a baby and not mobile and I didn't care about trying to actually learn how to take proper pictures!
This was the best I was able to get....
