P52-9-22 Technique: Nifty-fifty
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 07-26-2020, 04:02 PM

You've probably heard it a million times: “zoom with your feet!".
This week's theme is all about 50mm lenses (prime or corresponding zoom position), or of 50mm equivalent on crop cameras (e.g. 35mm for 1.5x crop).

Photos for the Week #22 competition are to be taken between Jul 27, 2020 and Aug 2, 2020 extended till Aug 9.

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

I'm fine with that, I won't pick a winner until the beginning of next week. I just got back from a 3 day weekend visiting family in another city and Sunday afternoon I put the DA 35 f2.4 AL on my APS-C format camera and went for a walk in the neighbourhood my wife's parents live in. It's a hodgepodge of low income rental homes to expensive custom homes built in an attempt to cash in a real estate boom about a decade ago; with some very eclectic front yards just begging to be photographed.
