struggling once again with MF and my old eyes
some people around the city
nice pics! awesome shots!
Not bad for old eyes!
(Just kidding, these are very nice shots, as usual ).
problem is, many more ones deleted than kept
I usually shoot from the hip, quick and dirty candids
with MF, I have to stop and focus and maybe miss the shot, or its not "candid" anymore..
I hear you, Frank - I have to toss a lot of my candid hip shots even with AF...
There was this guy years ago doing candids in the NY subway using a fake lens to distract the people he shot, maybe we should try this... LOL
great shots Frank, there are certainly less keepers when shooting manual as i have also found and shooting from the hip can be hit and miss. but the results for when you get it right are great.
great lens as well. back in london, missing the New York streets big time.
undecided if I will keep this lens, or go for the new Nikon 50 1.4, as I already have the 35/2, which itsn't going anywhere
that is my favorite street lens
yeah, i am waiting for the new 50mm to come out as well, but will be keeping the 35 f1.4. i forgot to ask you what camera are you using? my eyes tell me you are using a camera with a 1.5x crop factor but i could be wrong?
Jan I aim to go FX with a D700
Frank are you using a split screen?
The rate of keepers jumped a lo once I installed one in my D300.
no Byron, although I have often thought of doing that
as stated above I plan to go D700 in a few months, so I won't spend the money for that now..I'll just keep practicing and see how it goes until then...
if I can't do it, the new Nikon 50 1.4 will be out by then
more importantly, I shoot quick, and alot of time without looking, I need AF for that
Nice images mood. I recognize the some of the people in the first three photographs. In many ways I guess they are more famous than you and I
I'm sure they are....
