There’s something to be said for shooting loose, not minding much about technicalities, point of view, composition or working with your subject. The view from the angle of your eye, glimpsed in passing, has a certain raw freshness, unpretentiousness.
This came back to me (more…)
Just in from the darkroom: One of the first presentable pictures out of the Nikon S3 LEB. Of course, it is not one from the Japanese Garden in Bad Langensalza as I promised earlier. You can’t barge into a japanese garden with little time and failing light and expect to come back with a masterpiece.
Instead, the print in the picture below is part of an ongoing project called “Pattern Recognition”.
Sorry for the harsh flash on the print hanging on my probatory wall! In the original print, I can make out some characteristics of this camera’s Nikkor-S f/1.4 50 mm lens that I quite like. Even at f/1.4, it is sharp to the corners, the bokeh is smooth and the highlights have a certain glow. My apologies to Solms!
