An example of portraiture, albeit animal, using the 100mm lens. The low contrast gives a lot of scope when battling bright backgrounds and dark subjects. Here I managed to recover detail from the shadows as well as retain colour of the blurred garden through the window.
The very large F2.8 aperture also lets me have a strong separation of the subject and background even though they are close to one another – no more than 40cm.
