I had someone add this image as their favorite the other day on my Flickr page and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed taking it. I was out and about in the early evening testing my Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens on my Fujifilm mirrorless camera body looking for interesting detail shots.
It’s difficult for me to focus my manual lenses on my Fuji using the Fotodiox adapter – you’ve got to get the focus spot on, I mean really spot on when hand holding a shot like this. My camera quickly takes a dump (clarity wise) when you bump the ISO to handle any low light situations so you hold your breath and fire away. This one was recorded at ISO 400 at 1/100th probably at around f5.6. Of course, shooting with a 24mm lens helps too.
Comments are always welcomed as I’ve learned quite a bit from reader feedback. As always, thanks for stopping by and while you’re at it, feel free to visit my camera shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com (CC Design Studios hosted by Etsy). – Chris Whelan
