A lot of my shots so far during this project have been from street photography walks. I’ll probably be using the lens primarily for street photography, so this isn’t too surprising. But one of my goals for this project was to use the lens in a variety of settings, so I set out this afternoon to see how it would perform in landscape work.
This focal length (~50mm full frame) isn’t very common in landscape work. Wide (<35mm) and telephoto (>85mm) are definitely more suited to these types of shots, but I’ve used 50mm lenses for landscape work in the past with some success and I’ve found them to be plenty adequate. In cases where I really need something wider, i’ve been able to take several shots and stitch them together. But most of the time I can simply work within the 50mm frame without too many issues. The sky was pretty dramatic tonight, so I wouldn’t have minded having something wider to capture even more of tits beautiful colors…but I’m pretty happy with how this turned out nevertheless! 🙂
