First of all, this is not a writing article. I just want to share the performance of Leica lens 50mm summicron Rigid, in handling a backlight. If you need any basic background information regarding this lens of mine, please visit my other post HERE.
I am not discussing anything about this lens’ performance right now, nor giving comment about it. Because I think it’s still far for me to judge this lens by only using it a couple of times. I will, however, continue to use this lens and create as many images as posible, so I can post it here for everyone to see.
The reason I post only black and white images is simply because I do not have enough time to post-process it in colors (admitedly, Im just too lazy I guess). Another reason is, most of them were shot with ISO 800. Shooting backlight is tricky, the margin between the area exposed/uneposed by light is huge. Therefore it contains overexposed, uderexposed and EVERYTHING in between (including some unavoidable noises in less-exposed area). The post processing would be even more difficult for me if I did it in colors. But again, it’s just me…..I believe some people have more advance knowledge regarding this matter.
Thank you very much for reading my blog, I do appreciate your visit, I really hope you like it.
