What would you call your photography style?
I'm mostly known for my live music photography. I tend to have a bold, sharp approach to the way I document my shots.
What was your first impression upon seeing and holding the Convertible Art Lenses?
It was neat to see three focal lengths in such a small package.
How does the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System fit into your style?
I'd probably use this system if I needed to travel with a small bag but wanted to still have different focal length options. Perfect for street photography.
Could you share your best photo and the story behind that shot?
My favorite shot taken with the lens would be the long exposure shot at Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking the city. Something about the pillars coming up from the water in that shot feels like an "iconic" NYC shot. I did a 20-second exposure at f11 to maintain sharpness.
Any pointers that one should keep in mind when using the Neptune Convertible Art Lenses?
It's a fully manual system. Take some time (and possibly a light meter with you) to understand how to land the perfect exposure and sharpness.
