24/30 Week!
View previous topic :: View next topic

Hi!

Tomorrow we will start the second round of our focal length weeks:

24/30 Week Oct 22 to Oct 28.

Any lens between 24 and 30mm (original focal length) is allowed.
(AF, MF doesn't matter.)

Any subject is accepted (within the limits of good taste Wink).

Enjoy!


P.S.: I first called this week "wide-angle week", but 28mm at a crop-DSLR will not give wide-angle shots, so I changed it to "24/30 Week". Wink

Sure! Of course you can post "old" pictures. This idea was just to bring together photos that have been shot with similar lenses. Wink

I won't find the time to shoot this week, either. But I hope I can post some older pics. Perhaps tonight...

Does it need to be a 24-30mm lens or would 16-20mm on a APS-C sensor DSLR also be applicable?


First I thought we should stick to the original focal length.
Of course this will give different impressions when shot with a crop-DSLR or on film or FF.

But on second thought, a comparable perspective would not be bad either.
So just post the pics and explain that they are "effectively 28mm". Wink


P.S.: Very nice shot, btw!!!

Fantastic wide angle shots. (The one in the last post is wider than 24mm, right?)

Thanks for sharing.

one thing I do very much like about digital is the EXIF info because when I look back at slides and negatives from my film days I've often no clue what lens or focal length was used!


Your EXIF will lie with most of the MF lens attached to it Cool

Goes without saying that you won't get any focal length or aperture info...

Apparently all my mf lenses are all f0...... Laughing

Yes, but the Sigma 10-20 won't. When shooting with MF lenses, I usually try to remember the focal lengths and write them into the EXIFs manually.
Often I forget...

Although I have especially widened the focal range to 30mm? Cool Laughing

Oh yes, I know this feeling. Silly work, just stops us from using our gear! Wink

Actually I missed several opportunities this week due to having to go to work. Unfortunately it's the work that pays for the gear.... Confused

Anyway, here we go..

EOS 5D + EF17-40L @ 29mm, f4 unsharpened:



Same combo at same focal length but this time at f8:
