PLAY January - Nikon 50mm f/1.4G: Wrench, Bench & Box

More treasures from the old barn where we store our Camping Car/RV: I spotted these this morning when I went to collect my generator after leaving the batteries to charge overnight. There are no windows in the barn so this was lit only by the open pedestrian access door and required a fast aperture even at ISO3200 - f/2.8 here. The counterpoint is that the DoF is very limited at this aperture so composition and positioning the plane of focus becomes more critical.

This is for my PLAY project - you can read more about it in my profile - where I'll be using a different prime lens for each month of the year: in January it's the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G on a full-frame camera (the D610 today).

On black is better...
Absolutely marvelous, brings back many memories of my Father's shed.

Super light, textures...I enjoy these types of shots because of the details and shapes.

You've got a lot in focus here considering that f/2.8. I like the lines of the cut section of the board; eye-catching.

I like the ruggedness of your still life.

This is a very good one, too. Nice, friendly nifty fifty...!

We are looking in on a life left behind.

Very nice. I think I have commented on textures in your last couple of photos -- but it won't stop me doing it again. Nice textures :)

VML the grittiness which complements the era of these items. Are they old enough yet to be called artefacts?

@joansmor A life left behind - that speaks to me Joan... it would make a perfect title for this series of photos.

Great light and textures

I like the rugged wood and tools.

love how these textures come alive and great idea of using a different primes each month ;) I keep wondering if I should upgrade my 50mm 1.8 to the 1.4!!

Oh yes! These texture shots are usually a winner with me, Richard. Fine detail here. Fav! You've got me wanting to get out and about with the Spotmatic and 50mm (as a substitute for buying a K1 with modern 50mm!) Patience David! ...wait for the leg to mend. (Turns out to be osteo-myelitis)
