In the Bronx
Posted By: Judd, 10-25-2009, 05:19 PM

Shot with a variety of lenses from 28-200mm on a K100D. No lenses are newer than about 25 years, all settings were manually selected, and PP is minimal. I'm learning...slowly.

I think it looks cute (and slightly hilarious) both your kids are missing their front teeth, you could probably make a great double portrait with both of them grinning widely.

Using old manual lenses is the best way to learn, keep it up!

An excellent series. The old lenses are as good today as they were back then and many of us would say better than our modern choices.

Thanks for the kind words! My reason for predominantly going manual is to better understand then hopefully master the machine. I'm hoping that when that becomes more second nature, I'll be able to get more creative with the images. I also like the old lenses. I don't think the ones I have are anything particularly special but they do seem to get the job done and they're pretty well least they weigh enough! All of this is giving me a real perspective on what an amazing instrument the human eye is.
