I totally forgot I had shot this waterfall, but good thing I found the shots again
Alpa SWA, P45, Schneider 35mm XL. 2 shots shifted and stitched.
Took a couple of snaps with the Alpa before getting myself and the camera soaked. It went alright, but it’s a shame about the boring sunset.
Alpa 12 SWA 35 Schneider APO-Digitar XL. I’ve included the image without the lens colour cast corrected just for interest sake.
I’ve also added a more neutral edit which I think I prefer. Lastly, I’ve just added a 100% crop.
My new Alpa is proving quite apt at environmental portraits.
With a 35/5.6 lens you wouldn’t expect shallow DOF but it is the same visual appearance as a 24/3.8 in 35mm terms. So when you get in quite close you can selectively focus.
I have been playing around with scale focusing and the hit rate has been surprisingly good. Manual focusing with a focus scale has made me pretty good at judging distance over the years I guess.
Thanks to my girlfriend Sarah for being a good sport and posing for me
All 3 taken with 35mm Schneider APO-Digitar XL lens. The portrait shot wide open, see the crop for sharpness.
Some shots from the new Leica M, just having a lazy stroll about near the office.
I took a set of 7 sequential images using 5 different cards.
A break of 30+ seconds between each card allowed the sensor to cool down.
All shots taken at ISO160 and pushed in post.
The first scene was pushed +2.62 on exposure and +79 on fill light.
The second scene was pushed +0.69 on exposure and +100 on fill light.
You can draw your own conclusion but I’m going out to buy more 2GB cards.
