Personal Skill Builder

It's a truism in shooting that we love to practice the stuff we're good at, because success feels good, and we hate to grind reps doing the things we aren't good at in order to get better.

Z3 at the range, Canon T50, FD 28mm f/2.8, Kodak 400 Tri-X

This is true in click-click shooting just like bang-bang shooting, and one thing I'm no good at is using wide-angle lenses. Get much wider than 40mm equivalent field-of-view, and I'm lost at sea.

So that's my next improvement project!

I already had an older Canon EF 17-35mm f/2.8L for my work camera, so I added a Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D for my play camera to the wide-angle battery, and I'm setting out to see how to use them to make good photos.
