Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Angles

The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Angles was rather well timed.

After my accident in the spring I still have restricted movement in the right shoulder and my right arm is still weak. As a result I have put together a small kit of three manual focus prime lenses, a wide angle, a standard and a telephoto. They all fit into a very small camera bag.

The kit is a fraction of the weight of my regular bag of zoom lenses so it’s a lot more portable while the shoulder and arm continue recovery. Last Sunday morning I took it down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise and then for a walk around town.

Using the wide angle lens for the widest view of the bay.

Using the standard lens for a more normal angle of view and a magnification similar to the human eye.

Using the telephoto with its narrow angle of view lens to isolate small sections of the sunrise.

Thanks Susan. You’re probably right. I put together a retro kit of manual focus prime lenses a few years ago for when I was in the mood to shoot like I used to in the 1970s and 80s. This kit is just smaller and lighter than that kit.
