Nikon D4 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 — 1/200 sec, f/1.2, ISO 220 — map & image data — nearby photos
at the Sourenji Temple (宗蓮寺), Kyoto Japan
On the outing the other day that produced yesterday's “A Few Pretty Pictures from Kyoto's Middle-of-Nowhere Sourenji Temple” post, I brought along a 50mm f/1.2 lens. I don't use that lens much and need to learn how to use it... my limited experience to date has been chronicled in “Impossible Photography: No Light, No Tripod, No Hope. D700 and a 50mm f/1.2” four years ago, and “Artsy-Fartsy in Kyoto, at f/1.2” five yeas ago.
I'm about to head out this morning for some more fall-foliage photography, but I thought I'd quickly post this pair of shots at different apertures.
This is probably not the situation where one gets much oomph from going super wide. I'll post a few more-appropriate shots another day...
