I brought my beloved 2.8/28PC when bringing families to a day tour near city of Melbourne, thinking that I can use it to take some architectural photos.
Then I found myself sitting on a bench, watching my wife and two sons playing. The sun angle was perfect and I feel that I have to take some photos for them.
For the first time, I tried blind shooting. I set the aperture to 8 (maybe 11 later) and iso lowest as possible, so the shutter speed is around 1/2000. I don't know the DOF at these aperture so I did a few test shot and found the roughly right focus. Then I placed the camera on my knees and just shot.
The results amazed me. Although some are still out of focus, more or less, I finally GET THE RIGHT MOMENT. As family snap shots, I'm more than satisfied with them.
It's a shame I haven't developed this technique unit now, after 10 years since I started using these manual lenses. It's way faster than AF! It's really interesting and satisfying.
