Canon 5D Mark III | 50mm | F6.3 | 1/100 | ISO8000
First Daily entry using the extremely high ISO range of the Mark III.
This was shot way after sunset. Almost darkness in-fact. Lit only with the ambient light, and extreme sensitivity of the fantastic sensor in this camera!
I shot using an aperture of F6.3 because I wanted the railings to have a very gradual fall off, into the distance (hence the title). SOmetimes it’s nice to shoot at small apertures, even when you have the ability to shoot at 1.2 or 1.4. Though even if shot wide open, you would hardly be able to make out the scene at all. only a slither of maybe one letter of the sign would be sharp. The rest gone. Into butter bokeh-ness.
ISO8000 to compensate for the small aperture. Although I could have easily shot at ISO4000, with a slower shutter. I like the grain in the out of focus & dark area’s shooting at this ISO. It looks very 35mm film like, and although I have never shot a roll of 35mm myself. I have seen ALLOT to compensate for that factor. I do in-fact have a Canon AE-1 film camera, which was fantastic back in the day. But maybe I will save that for a rainy day, and write an article about my first try out with film.
Still really enjoying going out and shooting every single day. It’s a joy especially to use the 50mm, as it’s so versatile. It really makes me think in a whole different mindset when it comes to composing a subject. In a good way of course!
