I have a crop body camera (Canon T3i) and I'm renting the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens for the weekend. I hope to use it for both macro shots and portraits. Can you recommend an aperture and shutter speed for both handheld use (when I'm leaning in to photograph a bug) and for portrait use with a tripod? I plan to shoot outdoors in daylight, though I'll be in the shade some of the time. It's supposed to be sunny out tomorrow. I'm planning on keeping ISO at 100 in the sunlight and 200 in the shade. Please advise if I should change that.
For my macro shots, I'm hoping to get a bug in focus on either the left or right side of the frame and have the remaining 1/2-2/3 of the frame filled with bokeh. The portraits will be of two adults and a child, taken outdoors with a timer on a tripod.
I searched online and read that hand-held use requires a shutter speed one to five times the focal length, so I'm guessing I need a shutter speed between 1/100 and 1/500 for the macro shots? I'd love to get opinions on this, especially factoring in that the lens has IS.
