Very few photography brands can sustain a legacy full of history. With the Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 II, Meyer Optik Görlitz has brought back a 100-year-old design with modern quality construction that renders a vintage unique style that endures artistic at this modern age.
GoPro cameras are best known for shooting action videos, but they can be surprisingly good for taking still photos as well. The trick is to work with their quirks and limitations, rather than fighting against them. It is obvious that results will be quite different from images taken from smartphones or cameras, but that´s the hidden beauty.
The year 2020 is for sure a breaking point for the photography industry as the market got filled with mirrorless cameras from major brands and with them, many lenses were developed specifically for these systems.
Canon is one example. We now have the first EOS R system, a promise that will be the point of the spear for the years to come for this brand. Not only we saw the arrival of their first two mirrorless cameras – the Canon EOS R and EOS RP – but also a line of supreme objectives for the RF mount. No one can deny the quality of these glasses, becoming some of the best glasses nowadays. In the same way, it’s hard to ignore how expensive they are, getting at the top of the prices. Taking into consideration the previous asseveration, third-party manufacturers are also developing alternative options for the consumer with more affordable prices.
The 85mm focal length is what most would likely be considered the portrait photographer’s lens of choice, as this lens combines both incredible image quality, artistic blur, and very little distortion. The minimum focusing distance for the Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 RF lens is approximately 85.34 cm from the intended focal point.
This means that the photographer will have to stand further back than when using a wider focal length such as the 35mm. The depth of field has the potential for that bokeh and creamy background that many photographers desire for natural headshots.
Photojournalism and documentary photography are fields that most of the time are developed gradually and exponentially while gaining more experience, building up a quality portfolio, and mastering the art of telling a story with a series of images.
Knowledge and skills are obtained with the pass of the years whereas working with the equipment that one could afford at that time. The logical step of development is upgrading equipment when the current gear isn´t enough, or simply does not live up to the final expectations of the work to be achieved.
