Been putting my new 28mm f/3.5 AI lens to the test with a few shots locally in Taunton.
Quite like the arches here.
Getting a better hang of working with this new fully manual lens. Left the shutter speed “locked” at 1/250s and used the aperture ring to shift between f/8, f/11 & f/16 depending on the brightness/shadiness of the scene.
Seemed to work fairly well and any final exposure tweaks could then be applied in Lightroom 3 as I only ever shoot raw.
The focus was generally just left at about 2.5 metres which works well at these apertures.
