NEW YORK NEW YORK – On my way to Boston this morning for meetings. Still shooting with my Sony 7Rii and ancient Carl Zeiss Jena lenses – today a 21mm f4.5 Biogen from 1956. I bought this lens on eBay from a seller who listed it as a rare pre-war lens. Very rare indeed since the 21mm was not introduced until 1954. It’s a genuinely fine lens and a useful focal length for me. I often crop to square with wides. If you shoot level (to avoid radically converging verticals) you often end up with a vast expanse of boring foreground. The problem is solved by cropping the foreground out – a square aspect ratio works about right for a 21mm.
My largest online presence is on Twitter, where I have 92,000 followers.
Here’s a link to my Twitter feed: Woody’s Twitter feed. Twitter is actually down this morning so I’m pretty irritated.
Day 2280 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
