If you could only use one f-stop for an entire year what would you choose? Are you going to go for the wide open selective focus look or maybe just the staple f 8 and be there or maybe closed right down to get lots of dof.
Me, if I had to choose one f-stop for an entire year I would choose one that would make me stretch a bit in the way I create images, not my usual mode of picking the f-stop to get what I want in focus and what I don't want out of focus.
I think I would choose wide open which on my current crop of lenses is f2. Maybe the look has been beat to death, but I think it would be fun.
Remember this is the 35mm Camera and Accessories forum. What you would do in MF and LF doesn't count here. To bad so sad. So there.
Oops, should not be 4.5, should be 4, oh well can't edit polls.
Hope this doesn't sound too harsh, but this is the silliest thing I have seen on the site.
"I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander
A leading film manufacturer, probably Kodak, I can't remember which one it was a long time ago, about what apertures most pictures were taken at, the results were that the majority were shot at f8 and smaller.
