Iron Stairs

Still playing with perspective, this is the side-on view of stairs that I also photographed digitally. I took two different versions with my film camera, but I preferred this one to the photo with deep focus even though it didn't flatten space in quite the same way.

Sadly, the data back for my F5 doesn't imprint the shooting information the way it should, so I don't officially know what aperture this was taken at. I'm going to guess that it was at f/1.4. On the bright side, since the data imprint doesn't work, there's absolutely no downside to setting the aperture via the lens. Obviously this will only work on my AF-D lenses that I use on my F5, and not on the AF-S lenses for my D800, but I find that I have remarkably little psychic confusion between these two cameras, even when I'm using them both at the same time.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
