NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’ve added a new lens to my collection (I have lenses the same way that the women in my life have shoes): a 10mm full frame rectilinear lens from Voigtlander. This guy is really wide. No need to focus or use a view finder. Everything is in focus because of the extreme depth of field, and the framing of the image is . . . everything. Really fun.

Day 2524 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – My itinerary today took my through Rockefeller Center twice. There are a lot of tourists here, mostly doing selfies in front of landmarks. It’s hard to imagine capturing an image here that hasn’t been done in precisely the same way many, many time before. But today I’ve tried despite the rain and high, bright sky.

Day 1,670 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I walked around midtown with my iPhone and the 645 Pro app. I guess the name of the app is supposed to suggest medium format capabilities. Well it doesn’t turn the iPhone into a medium format camera, but its “raw” format may add a stop or so of dynamic range. Here’s an example. Note the slightly unpleasant bokeh in the out of focus portion of the image.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Well here we are on Groundhog Day. I had an early evening meeting in midtown just off of Fifth Avenue so I took the opportunity to walk over to Radio City Music Hall to capture this with my Sony Nex-7 camera and a Sony Zeiss 24mm lens.
