Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 Aperture Series and Focus Stack: Icy Boulder in Lee Vining Creek

Get Zeiss Milvus at B&H Photo. Milvus 35/1.4 for Canon or Milvus 35/1.4 for Nikon.

The series gives an idea of near-medium-far range rendering from f/1.4 through f/11. A 4-frame focus stack is also included.

Bokeh and secondary color correction greatly affect shooting a scene like this, but my interest was also in the seeing the outstanding resolving power of the Milvus 35/1.4 shine on the 45-megapixel Nikon D850, particularly the rock detail and the fine etched lines in the ice.

Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 Aperture Series: Icy Boulder In Lee Vining Creek

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/1.4 through f/11 along with a 4-frame focus stack at f/9, as well as black and white images at f/11 and f/9 (focus stacked).

The scene has lot going on in it, which by my experience communicates a great deal of place and season and the slow decay of time. If you visit the Eastern Sierra often, I think you’ll know what it achieves in capturing a totality. Look, and there is much to find, stuff that focus stacking delivers but ordinary shooting cannot. There is also a careful and intention placement of things that are subtly important, like the branch at upper right—being a fisherman this is what one has to work with all the time. Sometimes I wonder if the “best” photographs utterly miss that sort of conceptualization and sometimes I wonder if a city dweller and 'street shooting' are lost on me for similar reasons (unfamiliarity) and thus I am left to wonder if some aspects of excellence in a photograph depends more on the person viewing it than in the photograph.

The black and white version in particular is incredible to behold on an iMac 5K or iMac Pro. Few people understand the shockingly good visual impact of the iMac 5K or iMac Pro screen until they witness it.
