35mm lenses and people photography
« on: March 03, 2013, 05:32:01 PM »
35mm focal length is a quintessential "people" lens...its use straddles a wide range of people-photography genres...from out-right portraits, to street- and event photography, to traditional reportage. I will post a few from a recent trip ...

This is a focal length that helps tell a story so I wasn't keen on pixel peeping...
These are 35L shots but any 35mm is a 35mm, no? :)

I don't know how to get the size right for CR...these are meant to be smaller 800 pixel pictures but CR has upsized them? can someone educate me how I can get it to be the original size here? Tnx.

Would this not be better located in the 35mm L section of the lens gallery?

Wow. Lot of years since I was on a commercial aircraft. Lots of memories -- mostly awful. Had to travel so much for "business" and hated it.

Should have told me you were coming to Philadelphia! The flower show is currently going on (all this week), and it's perhaps the best in the world. A little too pricey for me at $30. though.

I agree about the 35mm. Back in the early days of SLR, that was considered the "normal" lens. It's on all my rangefinders.

Yes, air travel has gotten to be more like bus travel nowadays. :)
And I didn't know you were in Philly...couldn't you guys elect a guy with a better name for Mayor?  ;D
