Those are really nice. I need to try that with my daughter and wife on a black BG.^^^^^^ Just what I needed to see. Now, I know how and what to do try and get a similar shot.

thanks...! It's very easy to do, just keep them about 6ft away from the BG.

In my humble opinion……at f/11 most of the Canon L lenses are capable of producing that Sharpness and 24-105 f4L is obviously one of them. Try canon 50 1.8 II……!!!
best regards…Arman.

Yes you can! @ f11 everything will be sharp and with a shutter speed of 1/200sec, you can avoid camera shake. What camera do you use?

I have a 1DIV and 5D. I guess I just get used my 100mm MACRO which is TACK SHARP compared to my 24-105. I'm gonna try a similar shoot with the macro and my wife.

Ok... Let me tell you! The person I learned it from, used a 24-105 on a 5D MK-II.

Yeah, the differences are surprising. It seems like my macro is as sharp wide open as my zoom is at its sharpest. I remember when I had my first zoom, I thought it was broken or something, haha. It's easy to be spoiled with the nice stuff.
