MANHATTAN – Shooting at home testing the “bokeh” of two new lenses (bokeh is that character of the out of focus portions of the image): the Sony 85mm f1.4 GM and the Sony 35mm f1.4 ZA. Both lenses are massive, but very, very good and have, as you will see below, pleasing bokeh.

SEGGIANO TUSCANY – We’re staying here at Castelo di Potentino, a castle from the 14th Century (or so) owned and operated as an inn by an English brother and sister team. The wines from their vineyard turn out to be quite good.

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.
