Datsun 160U SSS Coupe

Had a bit of fun yesterday with my 50mm Series E lens… Did a small impromptu shoot of my friends 1976 Datsun 160U SSS Coupe for the first time… Shot did not come out too badly.

Winter Sunset

Here I tried to photograph my first sunset with my manual focus 50mm lens… I realise now I should have probably stopped down to around f/8 – f/11 in order to have the foremost tree in focus. I shot this at f/4. Love the learning curve you are exposed to when you shoot with a fully manual lens… Great fun! 🙂

Sunlight through the forest…

Love the atmosphere in this shot… Looking forward to my first opportunity to do some shooting in a large forest soon.

Old Lamp

It was refreshing to see the design details of this lamp that was in a adjacent piece of land. It was however behind a wall that had electric fencing on top of it, but thanks to the wide aperture I could use with 50mm f/1.8 Series E lens they are not visible at all thanks to the depth of field being so shallow at large apertures…
