Speed (Weekly Theme - 17th June)

by Piotr Matura June. 24, 2019 180 views

I though I'll share my entries for this week here. Both captured on film on a trip last year. Main challenge was to manually focus quickly, because I could not gamble on AF hitting or missing the subject that runs away and wasting a frame of the film. I leave to your judgement if I did a better job ;)

#2 is more speedy than #1, smilebut the contrast is a bit low in my opinion. In #1 is the vignette effect is a bit too much for my taste, but I like the motiv...Grossglockner Alpine Route is soo cool!  smiley

Thank you, Heike! smile Low contrast in #1 is probably because of shooting in the direction of the sun - whole frame of film got covered by haze. Or camera metered at darker part as I followed the birds and photo got a bit overexposed ;)
#2 - vignette is so big because at the time I only had a zoom lens for Sony DSLR. It fitted on my analog Minolta, but was designed for APS-C, not full frame - hence the big vignette. Since then I bought full-frame zoom and yes, it is much better with it ;)
