    I think I may have told you about this guy before, someone I’ve been “friends” with on flickr for a few years. He’s Italian with a Thai wife and they get around quite a bit. He shoots a Sony A7RII but the only lens he ever uses is a Zeiss Prime (fixed) 25 mm. He get an astonishing variety of incredible shots with it. I would have thought that a 25mm was a specialty wide angle lens.

    But he also has a unique and effective repeating motif in his landscape shots: his wife, usually in a day dress of some kind but almost always wearing a distinctive hat with be back to the camera looking at the scene. It’s really effective. Check it out: https://www.flickr.com/photos/massimo_riserbo/

    He’s a superb photographer, the kind to learn from.

      He has some beautiful shots there. I’ll have to play around with the 25mm focal length. But I’m guessing it has more to do with his ability with composition than just the focal length.
