Fall Challenge

by Abigail Gossage October. 13, 2019 573 views

Each year the RA Photo Club runs a Fall Challenge wherein each participant edits their experience for the day into 8 selections which will be put into a small competition. All images have to be taken at a specified location and day.

This year we went to Ramsay Lake in the Pontiac where we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise before the clouds rolled in. A great morning.

I did a comparison of scenes using my Fuji 35mm F1.4 and my Russian Helios 58mm F2. Each valid but definitely a different look. This one was with the Fujinon lens.

And this one with the Russian Helios F2

All the closeup shots were taken with the Russian Helios F2

Landscape the 35mm for me. The Helios is quite good at closeup work. That bit of softness does it. What colorsetting do you use, Velvia or Provia?

In this instance I agree about the 35mm but I do like the landscape look of the Helios when shooting in flat or low light.  I learned that I need to set the lens slightly more closed than F2 to get a bit more depth of field.  Always learning!

Oh, and I set the colour space to Velvia, no saturation added in post.

I think in Provia the Helios will be more like the 35. Velvia is a true Fuji setting
