    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Those are very powerful images, Helen. You're reaching deep into the wide-angle aesthetic. Looks like the M2 and 21 3.4 Super Angulon are a good fit for you.

    Helen,

    You should definitely try the CV 12mm lens for this kind of stuff... it's awesome!

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Helen very nice . Chuck Jones a member here swears by the 21 3.5 he just loves the look of it. It's a pain to use on the M8 since there is no metering but the look is unique. I like the texture you have in these. Nice work on that
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Beautiful use of the wide-angle perspective, Helen. I especially like the third one--nice curves!

    If you do go wider, remember what somebody on RFF dubbed the 15 and 12mm VCs:

    15mm: My feet
    12mm: My belly.

    So, are you off the M8 now, or using both?

    Lovely wide angle pictures Helen. This type of picture is why I bought my 18/3.8. I can't wait to get out and use it.

    Amazing work here, Helen. They make me think of the city images in Fritz Lang's Metropolis, strange, dark, void of human life.

    "M" is on my all time best films list. I've often wondered what "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" would have been like if Lang (first choice for director) had not be involved with directing "Spiders" at the time.

    If one has not seen "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", I recommend it for the visual impact of the B&W sets.

    Actually Cam I AGREE
    and tell you a Secret

    I think the SA shines even brighter on the Rd 1 & M8
    If YOU look at FLICKR:
    Tommy Oshima's (RD1s)
    K_iwi's (M8)
    the SA ROCKS ...Truly more Exaggerated & Sublime Vignetting & Charm
    with Film its a bit more Subdued still tres LOVELY though
    The SA & Digital its More Atmospheric

    BTW another FAV person I like on Flickr is Junku-newcleus
    Outstanding contrasty B&W Film Cooooolness

    Today I'm Out and About with my Old 35 1958 Summaron
    we'll see how this does with Film....

    Best To All xoxoxoxo

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    The 21 SA is legendary. One of those must have lenses for B&W film. Love your shots Helen. I sold mine when I needed the cash two years ago and have regretted it since. Good thing I know of a mint in the box one that wont go anywhere for when I have cash for it in the future As Guy says it wont meter correctly on meter bodies, but everyone should have a digisix/flash in their pocket anyway

    Here is one I took two years ago:

    Quite Moody , LOVE it Erik /ERIK FVE

    The only Difficulty I have with the SA21 is People Shots
    I can't seem to get in 'Close Enough' ....the way Bruce Gilden gets those Fab Character style shots of people

    Thanx Amin, Simon, Neil & Wouter

    messed up abit on this neg and the officer was getting annoyed at me for not moving fast enough amidst the Fire & Smoke..... so i fumbled with a wrong F stop

    you can, Helen -- it's easy! as long as you use a flash.... seriously, that's the key. without one, forget it. i didn't want to admit it, but that's truly the key. quite fun as well, though it kind of limits who you'll feel comfy taking shots of

    Wow, that's just a beautiful image. The framing and composition are outstanding, and the people, together with the overall scale, almost give this the look of an architectural mock up or model. Nice!!
