Season of Touit - Picture 24
Week 44, Saturday - End of Season
"This is the last picture of Season of Touit and next week I will start a new season with a new theme. But before that I want to recapitulate what I've done and how it has affected with my photography. First of all, I've been enjoying this season quite a bit since working outside of my standard focal lengths has really been like a breath of fresh air. When I started my Touit journey I was actually a bit worried if I would find use for the ultra-wide Touit 2.8/12 it was so different from my favorite focal length of 50mm (equivalent of 75mm on a full frame). Macro photography was also something that was entirely new for me and I wasn't sure if I would find any creative ideas when working at such a small scale of things with Touit 2.8/50M. To put it shortly, I have mostly learned my basics with 50mm lens (SEL50F18) and because of that I've been afraid to go for different focal lengths. I guess there are many others like me who prefer a certain focal length because they know they can 'get it work'. [...]"

Pretty interesting posts by you by the way.. including text.



Tried to make similar pic with my A35 + 24-50/4 (result in Sony Alpha thread), but while it wasnt bad, its not exactly great..

This is Fuji S5 Pro with my hazy 50/1.4 Zeiss, well.. 14-bit and even non-perfect Zeiss is simply far better than my alternatives. Shame there isnt FF Fuji with SuperCCD.

"Normal" color variant is in Fujifilm SLR thread..

Season of Photographic Eye - Picture 1
Week 45, Wednesday - Introducing the last season
"Tampere is also my home town and constitutes a creative limit of my last theme called Season of Photographic Eye. With this season I will be exploring the streets and other places of my home town. I will circulate small alleys, wander around town squares and explore other places of interest. The city of Tampere with its diversity will be my playground for the last season and I will be exploring it during the night time mostly. In some ways this theme is also dictated by the current natural season in Finland. This time of year in Finland there isn't a lot of light during the days, and if there is it's mostly grey and comes together with rain. It does set up a challenge for photography, but I hope to make it through until the snow comes. In effect, the last season will be a sort of street photography, but done with my way.

As I'm exploring the streets, I will also try to open up my photographic eye: a particular way of seeing things and subjects, which is partly subjective and partly cultural. I will try to explain to myself how I approach the photography the way I do. My aim is to make myself more conscious about it and hopefully offer some inspiration for others to contemplate their own photographic eye. [...]"

I love the rendering of this lens. There's just something magical about it for me.

Season of Photographic Eye - Picture 3
Week 46, Wednesday - Searching for colors
"With the last post I told you about my first significant experience with photography and how I used an antique Canon Powershot 600 (1996) to make an art exhibition. The second significant experience with photography happened to me when I was leaving from Finland to Japan to study as an exchange student at 2006. I'm not very happy to travel with airplanes so instead of flying I decided to take a train from Finland to Japan with Trans-Siberian railway (and of course I needed a boat at the end from China to Japan). Knowing I was going for an unforgettable trip I needed to solve how I was going to photograph the adventure. [...]"

Carsten, piano shot from prior page is excellent. Part dreamworld. Part nightmare.

Portraits aren't really something I do often, but it is hard not to get a good one from a great model when you have the Contax 2/100 mounted. This one is either f/2 or f/2.8.

Jim, really nice set of portraits with the good old CY 100/2 planar! Still love the rendering and bokeh of that lens.

Thanks, Wayne. It is tied for my favorite lens. I need to use it much more than I do. It has never disappointed.
