Another "Oldie" but something to learn about lens choice!

While in a "desert" in northern Denmark years ago I was just ready to photograph this Norwegian bass player on my 50mm when some people walked into my shot way in the back. I was shooting Polapan B/W slide film so I wasn't thinking Photoshop. My solution was to change to 20mm and move in close to hide the people in the back. I really like the perspective it gave the shot and it also brought in more of the great "desert". This is a technique I still use in stressed situations today. My philosophy is to try to fix it all in camera and not think SO MUCH what can be done afterwards!Blog%20copy2.jpg

Oh so true. I guess that is the disadvantage of everybody getting their hands on Photoshop these days. Just snapping around a bit and thinking "I can fix this afterwards in Photoshop". They should delete all those tutorials out there on the interwebworld.

BTW, nice shot !!!! Who is that ???

Sorry, but I can't remember his name, I should dig through my CD collection.
I think it is a great advantage to have many years on film, before going into digital photography.
