It also looks interesting with a long lens and a fisheye lens.
135mm lens. I didn’t realize this was the Forest Gump location until I got home and Googled it. I was curious why so many people were there taking photos.I imagine it does. At the time I only had the 50mm for that camera (now have a 28mm as well).
This was my first trip out there and I found the scenery very compelling. We have nothing like it here in VA.
Even if someone did not know about Forest Gump, the road is so straight and long with those two turns at the end, it just begs to be photographed. When I saw it the first time I did.
Never done this before (image post). 6x9 no edit no crop no nothing just as it appeared. My rule is crop-only, at most. ISO 400 (don’t remember brand), 500, f11, Fuji GS and late 1930’s Ithaca 37 ribbed forend slide by my side. 1:30PM full dappling sun. With this camera (or maybe generally w 6x9) after rolls, I believe I’m not good at using it for macro or persons. Easily discouraged. Maybe will dedicate it solely for “natural” stuff. I’m assuming this is landscape. Maybe not the last field image. Matte finished. Florida. An hour of driving into rutted pockmarked barely graded dirt trails and 45 minutes more of walking in up to 2 feet of water. Much humping, somewhat unfriendly environs. Going to blow-up the middle image to 24” w a metallic finish. My lady said, “Where you going to put this? Stop wasting your money - when you get it keep it OUT of the house!” I welcome criticism. Just no more from home.
