NEW YORK NEW YORK – More studies today, continuing another thread that I’m working on: shooting very wide. Shooting the Sony A7riii with the excellent Sony 12-24mm zoom. Today’s images are shot at 16mm and 21mm. This lens’s theoretical performance fades when zoomed higher that 18mm, but in practice the 21mm image looks fine. I enjoy working wide; I like this lens a lot.

MANHATTAN – Another day shooting real wide with my new 12-24 Sony G lens. One issues shooting cityscape or landscape with a very wide lens is the following: the lens really needs to be level or the perspective gets weird. That generally means that there is too much foreground – half the frame filled with the ground. The solutions are to crop to square, cropping the foreground out, or as I’ve done today, find something to fill the foreground. Working wide results in a lot of near-far images.

MANHATTAN – I’m shooting wide for the next week or so. I’m exploring a new lens: a Sony 12-24 G lens. Preliminary testing suggests that it is very, very good at the wide end of its range, through 18mm or so. It’s wide indeed and probably the best idea for Sony A7riii shooters who need ultra wide. Here it is at the Bloomberg Building at 12mm.
