MANHATTAN – My hat inventory needs some help – I loose hats and summer Panama’s get tatty after a few years of use. So . . . I went to JJ Hat Center on lower Fifth Avenue to stock up. Since I don’t do selfies you’ll have to guess at what i bought.
Day 3206 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
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.
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.
