Classic lenses

While there are many advantages in using modern CSC cameras, one of the drawbacks is the relative slowness in many lenses. While there are fast prime lenses available, they are often very expensive.

A solution that will work for some, is using classic lenses from 35mm cameras and adaptors.

Focus and aperture will have to be set manually, but using M or A modes, you can get back your fast prime lens of the past, and the wonderful razor thin depth of field that goes with using a fast lens.

Ebook project

Street-Photography-Speaks  (< click to see pdf)  Following on from the ‘ What makes a Great Photograph?’ blogs (see below), the idea was floated to make an ebook of contemporary street photography – with a view to a real book if there were demand. So, a sneak of the first few images, but I’d need another 20 or so (to make 50 in total) to make this thing work.

So, if anyone is interested,

I need a high res image
