ZENIT ANNOUNCES 5OMM F/1.5 LENS FOR E MOUNT New fast prime promises outstanding image quality for portraits and more Lens manufacturer Zenit has announced a news lens for Sony E-mount cameras. The 50mm f/1.5 FE (designated 1.5/50 in Zenit nomenclature) is full-frame compatible and fully manual. Zenit says the new optic is suitable for everyday photography, but particularly useful for specialist genres – namely portrait photography thanks to the large maximum aperture, which should provide significant subject separation and pleasingly shallow depth of field. We’ll have to wait for more details regarding the full specifications of the lens – and the number of aperture blades in particular – before being able to make any predictions about the bokeh quality. The retro styling of the lens should prove popular with street photographers and fans of throwback…

THE PRO: JEREMY FLINT CAMERA: CANON 5D MARK IV Jeremy is a pro who specialises in travel, landscape and location photography. He won the National Geographic Traveller Grand Prize in 2016, and the Association of Photographers Discovery Award in 2017. We met him in Cambridge, UK, an architecture photographer’s dream, where he took keen photographer David under his wing. You can see David’s work at http://bit.ly/2Jw4Qpt APPRENTICE: DAVID TODHUNTER CAMERA: CANON EOS 5DS David, from West Sussex, loves photographing buildings, and wants some tips and tricks for capturing great-looking architecture shots with his wide-angle lenses. David previously brought a tilt-shift lens, but sold it as he didn’t use it very much, and he’d particularly like advice on how to keep the straight lines of buildings straight without the help of a specialist lens.

technique assessment

APERTURE PRIORITY MODE To start, Jeremy set David’s camera to Aperture Priority mode (Av on the mode dial), so that he could have full control over the aperture setting. For most of the cityscapes they’d be using a mid-range aperture of between f/11 and f/16 to get a large depth of field for maximum front-to-back sharpness – the camera then takes care of the shutter speed to capture a correctly exposed image. PIN-SHARP PICTURES Jeremy also set David’s camera to auto focus – Jeremy uses autofocus for his landscape and cityscape photos, and places the AF point about a third of the way into the scene, which in conjunction with a mid-aperture value ensures that the key areas of the scene are sharp. He also advised David to always double-check his images on…

essential gear

1 NEUTRAL-DENSITY FILTERS A 10-stop neutral-density filter like the ‘Big Stopper’ from Lee Filters, or the six stopper variant Jeremy’s using here, blocks out light, allowing you to shoot super-long exposures. A 10-stop filter will turn a standard shutter speed of 1/30 sec into 30 seconds, or 1/4 sec into four minutes, making it possible to capture the motion of moving elements in your scene, such as water or clouds. This creates the impression of those elements moving while the static buildings in the frame remain sharp, for much more compelling and dynamic images. 2 TELEPHOTO LENS - 70-200MM YOU may think that a wide-angle lens would be the best choice for landscapes and cityscapes, but a telephoto lens, like the 70-200mm Jeremy uses, can work well too. They allow you to zoom…

jeremy’s top 10 tips

1 DO A RECCE Visit and explore your favourite cities regularly. You’ll soon find your favourite spots, but you’ll also discover new buildings and scenes every time. 2 SHOOT RAW Raw files contain loads of extra exposure data, giving you additional editing options in post. 3 ANTICIPATE THE MOMENT When framing up with people, anticipate where they’ll go, so that you can shoot at the ideal moment. 4 INVEST IN THE RIGHT KIT There’s no point investing good money in camera bodies and lenses only to put a cheap filter on the end. Do your kit justice, and invest in good-quality peripherals too. 5 USE THE OVERLAY GRID often compose using the rule of thirds overlay in Live View – it’s a top way to get a good composition. 6 GET INSIDER INFO If you’re shooting in a new location ask…
