No, it isn’t anything to do with New Years resolutions! Honestly! For a few months now I’ve been wanting to get back into photographing. Recently we’ve taken to walking the dogs locally as one of them has decided he doesn’t like going in the car any more! On our walks I have seen many images and only had the iPhone with me – and the results are pretty disappointing. With this in mind I’ve started taking the 5D Mk2 with a 40mm lens with me on my walks.
(Geek alert!!) I like the 40mm lens. One film camera I loved using was the Olympus RC35 which has a 42mm lens and I always felt it was the perfect fit for my vision. I decided not to take my 24-105 as I’m not a lover of zoom lenses – I think the honesty of the image is compromised with zooming in – it just doesn’t seem right to me – except for weddings, of course!
