After the coffee by thelizardking25
After the coffee
Copenhagen April 2016

I was testing out a Canon L 50/1.2. Not a bad lens when I could get it to focus - but it one hell of a back focus issue. Most of my shots ended up out of focus as a result. Anyway, don't see how I could actually use one in practical applications - honestly I found an MF Noctilcux f.95 easier to work with (too bad it's 6X the price!) - at least it focuses where I tell it to when wide open and so as I long as I tell it focus in the right place, I'm OK. I didn't try the Canon 50 on MF, so maybe that would have handled it, but my main interest in the lens we to get a super fast AF 50. So for me, it's a 'no go' even though I have seen nice work from other people done with this lens and so maybe it does work for some people.

Experimenting with using my 5D for street photography - a bit of an odd experience after using a Leica for so long. The 5D (especially with a zoom on it like a 24-70) just feels huge compared to my M4-P with a 35mm Summicron on it.

Happy New Year!

So, for this year...I actually plan to DO what I said I would do last year re my photography :) - ie, learn all there is to know about it and really get professional at least terms of technique.

Add to that the following for 2016:

1: Travel more...which seems to be a good means of finding inspiration, and to do other types of photography in addition to street photography. Hope to get back to Africa again shortly and do some more wildlife photography (with a telephoto lens this time!) and hope to get to many other interesting places this year too;
2: Get set up for home development of BW film;
3: Stop eating potato chips :) ;
4: Increase bench press to more than 100kg (220 pounds).

Hope everyone's resolutions work out for them too and here's to a photographically-productive 2016 for all!
