Details, Details, Details.

I’ll be the first to admit that I am, hands down a sucker for ultra-wide lenses, big sweeping views and wide open spaces. I love my 14-24mm lenses, 28mm, ect. The wider the better. I was originally planning on getting a manual focus 35mm lens for this project. But then I thought to myself. Why not force myself to go back to when I was first learning photography when all I had with my Minolta SRT-102 was a 50mm lens. The AI-S Nikkor 50mm was firmly attached to my F3, to help me pay attention to something, details. Sure I can still use the 50mm for my wide open spaces (I’ve done it with my Rolleiflex which has an 80mm lens, an equivalent to the 50mm in 35mm). So for week 5 I wandered around Toronto looking for doors, any sort of door I could photograph. Big doors, little doors, transit doors. Neat doors.

Doors, lots of doors.

  1. I love this post!
    There is nothing more gratifying than dorrs in Toronto. I’ve been shooting doors in Toronto with a friend of mine for the past 2 years and the joy never ends.
