Unfortunately, my angles are getting wider. I would like to be normal. Perhaps I need to carry a heavier camera.
I do most of my work with normal lenses. Especially landscape and portraits. I might use a longer lens for landscapes. I tend to go wide with architecture, especially interiors. I like wides with panoramic cameras.
For landscape I use mostly 47mm and 90mm on 4x5 field camera and 45mm on Pentax 67 or 645.
For studio portrait I use the most 210mm on 4x5 and 135 macro on pentax 67 and 645.
With 8x10 camera I use 210mm and 360mm, the most.
For landscape , I used 250 mm Sonnar Copy at Kiev 88. For Macro and to 4 meters far objects , 80 mm planar copy. I used 5 Leicas until today and I prefer 50 mm. But this summer I will buy a R4 with 150 mm Telyt for Ektachrome 100 vs.
Now I have Rollei 35 S 40 mm Sonnar and Nikon One Touch with a 35 mm Sonnar.
Other two large format cameras will be built , first 6x17 cms Anamorphic Pinhole Camera with BW Kodak film , developed for positive and toned with Palladium and emulsion transfer - if possible I am still look for an answer - to glass and second camera homemade 35 mm Lomo Spinner with slit lens
On my Linhof Technikardan S 4x5 I own & use 72mm, 75mm, 150mm, 300mm.
My most used lens is probably the 150mm, followed by 75/72mm. Although I like long focal lengths, I hardly shoot with my 300mm lens. The reason may be its heavy weight, big size, or simply that I usually pick the lens needed to frame the subject. I also shoot more wide angle as I tend to shoot more architecture & cityscapes.
My next purchase will be a 47mm and a 150mm lens (to replace my old one). I'll sell my 75mm, too. The 72mm is a recent purchase :)
4X5 format 90, 135, and 210. It seems I go through a preference change on a daily basis, I think it is just the mood of the landscape I am in at the time. Do I want to grab it all, or isolate elements of the scene? I just got a 360 and wonder how often I will use that. Sometimes I wish I had a 1,200mm, but I am glad I'm not carrying a camera in the field that will accommodate it.
