Tag Voigtlander40f14

Photos taken with (or occasionally, perhaps, photos of, or articles mentioning) the Voigtlander Nokton Classic 40mm f/1.4 lens.

It’s a great little lens that I used on my Sony NEX-6, and now use with my Alpha 7. It’s a useful focal length for general use, wide enough aperture to be able to get quite shallow depth of field, and it’s small and light. Handling is great, as is build quality. Images get noticeably soft and warm at f/1.4 (though not excessively so), but it gets decently sharp and ‘normal’ when stopped down a stop.

Taking a Fence

Nice textures. An old tree and a wire fence. Nice textures.

Wry Know

One of the rhinos scattered around Exeter and beyond. I processed this one in Affinity Photo, more than usual. There wasn’t much contrast between rhino and background, so I added a layer to reduce the saturation, and masked it out…

A Walk in Exeter, 2016-06-09

I walked from the quayside up into the city centre, and took a few photos as I went. There are some great murals on an underpass on the way. This is the first time I’ve edited a set of photos…
