Season of Touit - Picture 20
Week 42, Saturday - Next level
"Stop the press!! Today's post was originally supposed to be the last post of Season of Touit before I start my last season. I had already wrote a part of it, when I got an unexpected e-mail which might change my plans. It could be the best thing ever happened in my story or it might not lead to anything, I don't know yet. Right now my project is now in its liminal state (between two stages in plain language) and before I can continue to the next level that is the last season of Year of the Alpha I have to wait and see what happens. But this is also good news, because I can continue the Season of Touit at least for a week (might be even more if the e-mail leads to something) and tell you about some things that I haven't touched yet. So, sit tight as I continue to share my experiences with the Zeiss Touits.

One of those things that I haven't discussed about yet, is the Touit 2.8/12's great functionality in small spaces. [...]"

Season of Touit - Picture 21
Week 43, Wednesday - a Real Touit
"While I have shared my pictures taken with Zeiss Touit 2.8/12 & Touit 2.8/50M regularly on many photography forums, I have found that there is one preconception regarding the Touit family that emerges pretty often. It seems that there are many photographers who perceive the Zeiss Touit family different from other Zeiss products like ZA & ZM's. Many of them seem to ask if the lenses of Touit family are 'true' Zeiss lenses. [...]"

Season of Touit - Picture 22
Week 43, Saturday - 5000 Bras
"Sometimes when you find a perfect but random opportunity for a picture you should go for it. Couple of days ago I was visiting a local library and noticed a beautiful environmental artwork at the hallway. Right when I walked in I knew I had to take picture of it and share it here. This a small detail of artwork crafted from 5000 used women's brassieres. It's part of the national women's breast cancer campaign called 'Kanssasi' (With you) which spreads out knowledge about women's breast cancer and also support the women who have had it by creating more positive image of their condition. I found it really beautiful way of honoring these women. It's like a sea of roses, which reminds us that every single individual is precious and a story of its own. Great work!

Now back to Zeiss. [...]"

Season of Touit - Picture 23
Week 44, Wednesday - Brown
"When I originally started this season, I said that I would be exploring focal lengths that differ from my standard photography. While I've been doing just that with the Zeiss Touit 2.8/12 & Touit 2.8/50M, using these lenses have unconsciously introduced another theme into my work in this season. Looking at my Flickr-stream it becomes very clear that this other theme is color. Many of my shots have really been about simplifying the subject and let the colors emanate from my photographs. So, while I've been working with very different focal lengths, this season has also been me exploring what I can do with these 'new colors' that I get from Zeiss lenses. [...]"

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'. [...]"
