I took a break from this blog but now I'm back. This wasn't by choice, but because I was working my day job while packing to move to Japan . . . Yep, I'll be in Japan for a while. Here are a few photos and an explanation as to how and why it happened.
Today I want to talk a little about this hidden little gem of a lens, the Handevision 75mm f2.4. Full review coming soon, but since those take forever to build, compile and process, I wanted to share a little bit about why this lens is unique and why it's totally worth it. So the big question, since there are so many lenses out there for both Sony and Fujifilm, what's the point of these Handevision lenses? What makes them special? Especially this 75mm f2.4?
With the crazy resolution of the Sony A7r III, I thought it would be fun to try out some photos with the 2.35 cinematic crop. I've done this in the past with my landscape photography using a 3:1 or 2:1 crop, but I've never done it with anything casual and the results are very cool and cinematic.
I finally decided to buy the exquisite Fujifilm 90mm f2 and have been testing it thoroughly around town and at the pumpkin patch with the kids. I have to say, this thing is amazing and is one of Fujifilms best lenses in my opinion. Everything about it is just incredible.
Wow, ok, so let me talk about Beverly Hills for a little bit since I live fairly close to this place. Actually, my wife works down the street from here and while she was working last Saturday, I decided to take a walk with the stroller so my little 2-year-old could take a nap - this is where I ended up.
During the seven-day Princess cruise up to Alaska, I tried to mix up my lens usage for reviews and to challenge myself. Carrying only a few lenses with me as I roamed around the boat seeing what I could capture.
My family and I took the seven-day Princess cruise from Vancouver to Alaska. That was a week ago and we've been traveling through Alaska since. With spotty cell service and often no free Internet, this is the first chance I've had to post.
In the very little free time I have these days, I've been still trying to go out and shoot at least on the weekends or between jobs. Finding time to actually process the photos is a whole different story. For this set my wife and our little one took a stroll down to Santa Monica with my Sony A7rII and a Helios 44M-2.
