A personal blog of photography and commentary by Andrew McAllister.

Willard Peak in Northern UtahAbove: Dramatic Light and shadow on the base of Willard Peak in Northern Utah. Recently I have expanded my lens set to cover wider and narrower views and so begins the process of learning how these tools effect how I see and how to get the most out of them. The above image form this past weekend was made with the wonderful Zeiss 100 Makro-Planar. I am pleased with the lenses ability at and near infinity, a distance that many of my subjects occupy. Excellent contrast and focus from 1.4 miles distance in the foreground and at 2.23 miles near the top.

    Wow Andrew. Love the detail and your explanation. Haven’t really considered Zeiss lenses until now. Thanks for the info.

      When you have the time to manually focus the Zeiss line is worth it.
