A photo scrapbook: Paris (V1+10mm) c&c welcome
1

I had a week in Paris (work), but carried the V1+10mm with, me, now and then would take a shot. Nothing "artistic", just a way to register my stay, actually for myself (not really a "touristic" approach).

I added some comments, just as one would do for a scrapbook. Thanks for viewing.

I'm looking forward to seeing them. I am not on high-speed wifi at the moment, and unfortunately I can't get your flicker page loaded up (well, except for pretty oscillating blue and pink balls lol!). I'll keep trying though

Cheers,

Wayne

Thanks for sharing those images. I like the documentary style of the images and the presentation with the added comments. Images and the added text work well together, creating a calm, interesting, personal view on (of?) Paris.

10mm lens

Great series, thanks for sharing with us.

Do you like the 10mm lens?
Many shooters have 10-30VR and/or 30-110VR lens attached to their camera.

Thansk for the visit. I don't think any of them actually stands up as a great image, but the way the V1+10mm let me just look at something and shoot w/o much else is really nice.

That's my view as well, and the V1+10, small, light and unobtrusive, helped make them work that way. No grand views, no monuments, just observation of some aspects of Paris.

Many shooters have 10-30VR and/or 30-110VR lens attached to their camera.

I don't have the longer zoom, just the 10-30, which for me is just too slow, and a bit soft in the WA end, and I shoot mostly WA. So the 10 f/2.8 is the best lens for me. The camera becomes very light and small, fits in the jacket pouch actually.

I think leaving the freedom of the zoom home helps concentrating on looking at things more carefully, on composition.

Re: 10mm lens

Couple things:

1) Thanks very much for sharing these. I really enjoyed the story they told of your travels. It makes me think I should recompile my shots from a recent Vietnam trip in a similar format, if only for my own remembering/enjoyment. Your shots were great.

2) I feel exactly the same about the V1 + 10mm. I have the 10-30mm as well and agree; it just doesn't do too much for me. Once the 18.5mm is available, I'll definitely sell the 10-30mm (if it's worth anything) and get the 30-100mm which I hear praise for all the time. I am the same way - it's liberating to be forced into one focal length and I've found that it challenges me to get more creative (and more often than not, the images reflect that).

3) Can you tell us a bit more about the shooting style? Just leave the camera on "P" and snap away? Auto-ISO? Auto white balance? I keep hearing to just "trust" this camera and let it do the work for me, but that's so opposite of what I'm used to. It makes me uneasy

Thanks again,

-Collin-

Love the light of your street shots and the angles. Good work with the 10mm which is indeed unobstrusive. Use it a lot.

Paris is my home city, where I was brought up, you caught the mood of the city well, congratulations, really enjoyed the visit, as I live in Provence now. Peter.

Most of these shots were done in S mode (choose SS and let MM or Spot choose aperture), in auto ISO. Outdoors, good light, AI at 400. Indoors, mostly AI 3200.

But I sometimes go back to Manual, using MM/Spot just as reference. The V1 is actually easy to use in manual, contrary to my early impression.

I have used it in full AUTO Scene mode, it actually does a pretty decent job, but still I like to be able to choose SS to make sure I won't miss image because of camera shake. With the dslr I actually use M all the time and spotmetering, very old-fashioned.

Thanks for the comments. Paris is a fave for walking around and shooting (and for many other things as well ). I have a couple of other series from there, both shot with D80:

THis shot, taken at HCB foundation, is one of my faves:

Thanks for the tour of Paris! Been ages since I visited the town - for a short while I lived in a very old house, just a short walking distance from Tour D'Eiffel, since long replaced by modern glass buildings.

Lovely shots, all of them!
