How the winning photo of the "Springtime" contest was made
By sad_punk in Photo Contests on Jun 4, 2019
For my trip to Japan I took my Pentax K-1, but had to choose some convenient lenses as I couldn't bring everything with me.
I left my big and heavy fast zooms behind in France and travelled with the smc Pentax-FA 28-105mm F3.2-4.5 and the Sigma 70-300mm APO DG F4-5.6. This choice was made based on their weight and the space available in my luggage. And the space thus gained allowed me to bring some fast primes for the darkest hours of the day.
Most of the time I shot with these two lenses, acting like a tourist more than a photographer. The need to visit many points of interest did not allow for me to be everywhere at the best hours regarding the light, nor simply the best days.
But a good photo is sometimes a question of luck.
