Another tough work for the camera. Live shows are hard but rewarding. Black dress, black shall and very low light on stage. Z6 at work again.

Paco, your creativity is enormous, and the Z6 makes you even better.
Impressed about the AF, on Z6, the scene is black on black and the focus is spot on. That was the technical stuff, but framing and timing is you Paco :)

Thank you Bent.

  The Z6 at work again. One fix lens, 28mm 1.4e and stuck in backstage. As Akira says, limitation is inspiration.

You are truly inspired, Paco!  The use of the lens' perspective is perfect!

To tell the truth, I've never really liked or been inspired by the lenses in the 28-35 (equivalent) range according to my preference.  But your image above may have changed my prejudice.

Thank you guys.

  Akira, thanks for such a compliment. I personally donīt favor that focal length myself but everytime I grab this specific lens is very special.
  One more -since I have the thread for myself for a while now  ;D- Same day, same lens.

   This is the lighting operator, very professional and kind fellow. It does treat stage lights diligently but with taste. This portrait takes me to the memories of big classic paintings

I am not in favor too and I donít use 28 mm for portraits due to distortion but this lens donít look like 28mm to my eyes , did you used correction?

No, i didn't but it was shot with the Z6 and developed in LR so it may have been corrected without my input? Of course the closer you get the more pronounced distortion and here has a more 35ish look, I think

When the face is kept small in the frame using a 28mm, it is effectively being imaged with a perspective as if from a  longer lens. Like shooting a portrait on m4/3 with a 28mm lens.
