NEW YORK NEW YORK – I had a bit of time to day to get to know my new lens a bit better. Here’s an image taken in our living room. I’ve used a technique called focus stacking: taking 6 (in this case) images with differing focus points and combining them (using specialized software) into a single image. This was taken with my Alpa Max; I’ve leveled the camera and shifted the lens downward about 12mm to get a pleasing composition with a prominent foreground (a common strategy for shooting wide angle lenses) at the same time keeping vertical lines true.
Here’s what my Alpa TC looks like with the new Rodenstock 32mm lens and my Phase One digital back. As you see it’s a handful, but actually quite manageable.
