Goethe's recent activity

  • Depending on which FD lenses you have you may want to pull them out of the cupboard. Canon's vintage glass is great on a modern mirrorless camera. An old Canon FL 55/1.2 was (and still somewhat ...
  • I've stopped using focus peaking. It is good for a general idea of where you need to be, depending on your DOF. But I shoot a lot wide open at 1.2 or 1.4. I have gotten very, very fast at using ...
  • Dude, this is where you lost me. I was reading what you were saying up until you jumped the shark with this masterful, false dichotomy. I mean, even the acid heads at Burning Man wouldnt touch ...
  • With the exception of maybe three images, every photo in the sig link below was shot with vintage, manual focus lenses.
  • Yeah, buying multiple speedboosters in your case makes little to no sense. I was somewhat in your boat back when SB's were first released, before the first FF mirrorless were even a dream. On my ...
  • Replied in False news
    So...claims about fake news, cancel culture, science denial and yet another false dichotomy...this time about a medium format lens in front of micro four thirds. You're right, I wont bother ...
  • You really seem bent about the education thing. I did not attack your education, I said, again, I am not in charge of it. Yet I keep having to defend my suggestion to the OP because you think my ...
  • And also...you know what? Has anybody in this thread who is talking crap about SB's actually used one ? Other than me? I'd really, really like to know. Because with all the talk about leaps of ...
  • People I respect are judged on a case by case basis. It has nothing to do with some obsequious, mutual equation. There are people whom I loathe, but respect, for any number of reasons. Including ...
  • The irony of this is that speedboosters very cleverly use the laws of physics to do what they do. No imagination required. Hmm. Nobody has mentioned anything about magic. Although Arthur C. Clarke ...
  • When confronted with photographic pedantry, yes. This. This right here. I never, ever, in anything I said even suggested it is the best way. You are making up a straw man argument to change the ...
  • That was not an insult, it was an observation. You want the facts? Just about everyone who has used and reviewed speedboosters say they do exactly what they are advertised to do. This includes me, ...
  • Look, honestly, I dont really care if you see the point or not. Nobody left me in charge of your education. But since you asked... Here is an article from our very own DPReview that covers ...
  • And yet one of the great American photographers, Ralph Eugene Meatyard did exactly this. And excelled at it. Funny thing art, huh?
  • Mostly right, yes. Again, with limits of translation and discounting the entire history of the term, yes...mostly right. Neither concept dictates that. Hard stops, my friend. Im sorry, I dont agree ...
  • Another persons limitations in their ability to leap imaginatively is fortunately not a factor that limits mine.
  • This was not the lesson. Thanks for trying.
  • With a Speedbooster , as mentioned in my post.
  • Replied in Negative Space
    A client will almost never mention the actual phrase negative space, as it is a term of art. They might, possibly, say they want big open spaces of the image for some reason. Unless the person you ...
  • There are indeed a lot of really good manual focus options being developed and released right now. Almost a mini renaissance of this type of gear. And this is not counting all of the old vintage ...
