September 3, 2016

I'm supposed to have a meetup today with someone at LRT - Central Terminal station... who was unbelievably 4 hours late, coming from Las Pinas. (This is just to give you a background on my visit to the area, nothing personal.)

Now this leaves room for me to go on an unplanned street photoshoot throughout the whole afternoon. In perfect coincidence, the Sigma and Helios 135mm's were in my bag for testing outdoor. Both of them are really good lenses with excellent clarity and vivid colors (they had better multicoated glass and technology since they were made in the 1980s).

They were in different mounts before, but it was exciting to use them now after my successful conversion project to Nikon mount. Most of the shots were at their widest aperture, there may be 2 or 3 at f/4.

Half of my shots here are in monochrome because that was my challenge to self this month. However, I still ended up taking shots in color just to show you how the lenses would perform.

To prove my point that manual focus is not hard, I was on standby to shoot candid of people crossing the street. Why? People are moving!

I could say that 135mm (on my DX camera, it's more like 210mm) is probably my favorite focal length for street photography aside from ultra wide angle lenses, because of the compressed perspective, and it allows ninja distance from the action but not be too tight like a 200mm lens would feel on my camera.
