MANHATTAN – Still shooting wide. A poor day for me visually – I had trouble getting into the moment.

Day 3142 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this date last year (day 2777 of one photo every day): Bokeh again. Shot last year with a Leica Q, a camera that I owned briefly and didn’t care for. It has a fixed 28mm lens, actually an excellent lens, but a focal length that I don’t care for because it’s the equivalent of an iPhone perspective and is accordingly “common”. As you will see the lens’s bokeh is slightly edgy.

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 – Here we are at home with this super wide 12-24mm Sony lens, shooting at 12mm. Controlling these very wide lenses is actually a bear: the slighted tilt or non orthogonal positioning results in incurably weird distortion. You will see below that the lens a perfectly rectilinear, probably as a result of profile corrections automatically applied in Lightroom.

Day 3131 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life. A repeating number.

At Home

On this date five years ago (day 1305 of one photo every day): Home sweet home
