Last friday, I walked down the street with my wide legacy/film lens in hand, the Tou/Fivestar 28mm f2.5 macro, and I didn’t regret it. This is the first time I tried to shoot street photographs with a wide lens, I often used a 50mm lens back then. But a wide lens has it advantages.
First, it is a wide lens, so I can capture more into my camera, and wider angle mean more flexible in term of layout or composition of the picture. The lens give me more freedom to play.
Second, my Tou/Fivestar may be not a sharp lens but I quite like the way it recreated the light cover on objects.
