28mm Portraits Project

28mm portraits project

Since June 2017, I have been working on my new idea-the 28mm Portraits Project. For the past six years, I have primarily been using a short telephoto prime lens for my photography. I have, however, always wanted to get more close to my subjects and out of my comfort zone. Towards this end, I will be working with a 28mm wide angle lens, which is a focal length I have hardly used before.

  1. Hi
    When I started my blog you were my first follower and I always like your photography. I love portrait, street photography and of course black and white. Could you give me some advise in reference to the black and white shades?

    1. I like to mostly focus on mostly dark and high contrast black and whites. So I always make sure I don’t over expose and try to shoot the portraits in a shade and might use a reflector also. I think you need to keep an eye on highlights and make sure it is never burned.

  2. I’m currently a hobbyist but I’ve also practiced photo journalism for years. It has been my struggle to come close to my subjects. The choice of lens is interesting and you have a greatly admirable work. Inspiring, man!

  3. With 28mm you have to get very close to get a good portrait. I am not sure what Platon uses, but I know he gets right on there. If you haven’t seen his photos, check him out. I really love the results you have so far.

  4. These really are awesome photographs! Your style certainly is unique, and it shows.

    I have always wanted to experiment with a medium or large format camera. But my income does not allow it. So I’m stuck with my Canon AE-1, 35mm camera, which I still love of course.

    I also appreciate your proper use of the English language.

  5. Nice. I’ve shooting with a 28mm for a while. On my last trip to Cuba I took only a 50mm & 28mm lens. I used the 28mm 90% of the time. I find it ot only brings a certain intimacy to the moment, but that it forces you to compose with your entire surroundings in mind.

  6. Hi there

    I want to let you know that their is a problem with the Fiji slide-show. It could just be the WP App on the iPad, but touching and of the buttons of that series causes the cursor to jump back up to the top of the page and so the slide-show doesn’t play.

    I love this project by the way! ☺️

  7. The only times I have shot portraits with a 28mm is. . . Is. . . . is, well never, I guess. It hasn’t really occurred to me but I’m sure I’ve shot a few here and there with a zoom at or near 28mm. I’ve used a 35mm often enough but it’s not the first one I reach for. In any case, this collection is one of the best I’ve ever seen – good work!

  8. Thank you for coming to my site.
    I also like taking a photograph.
    But I am not a professional photographer.
    Just take a photo as a hobby.
    I will Enjoy watching your photos.
