PARIS THROUGH A LENS

Ryad guelmaoui

Photographer from France

Hi my name is Ryad.
I’m photographer, film maker and art director based in Paris.

I work with well known brands like Coca Cola, DS, Opel, Eastpak, Mariott Hotels etc
in different capacities including video production, editing, commercial photography and digital campaigns.
Since 2017, I’ve been a Samyang brand ambassador and in this post, I want to share my story - the story of the city I live in : PARIS THROUGH A LENS.

Something I always love to do
in Paris is to walk around with my camera by my side,

because even when I feel I know the city like the back of my hand, each time
I go for a walk I discover a new thing, new streets, and new buildings.

Why the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 FE?

First of all, as I said above, since the switch, I have been looking for something lightweight with high performance to make my travel better and lighter. The 14mm was the perfect choice for me, because it’s a fast lens (F2.8) perfect for lowlight shots. The focal length is huge and I like showing that perspective in my style of photographs. I also like it because it has AF and that’ makes street photography more efficient by capturing the moment quickly.

I also use the 14mm for taking
some portraits, to show the models
+ background in an original way

What I love about this lens is
it has sharpness and low distortion.

Even if I’m on a 42mp sensor, the result is quite sharp.
I also used it in extreme conditions (I don’t know if it’s weather sealed or not)
but it’s still working very well.

After months of using that lens, it has become one of my most used lenses for my urban/architecture/city pictures. I always have it in my backpack because it gives me another perspective.

Samyang’s Guide to Achieving the Optimal Angle of View

The perfect spacing and distance are always necessary when shooting all kinds of subjects, including people, to give them a proper relationship with the beautiful space around them. So, what’s the exact distance that helps you best appreciate a work of art, or a photo?

The correct answer is the diagonal length of the full frame of a subject.

표준화각 자료 이미지
표준화각 자료 이미지

The best standpoint from which to appreciate the full view of a subject is the distance of the diagonal length of the subject frame. This wider angle is superior to standing closer at a 50 degree angle to get a more detailed view. This notion of an ideal distance or view point is also applicable in the world of photography.

For still images, keeping a distance equal to the diagonal length of the full image surface is recommended. The full frame sensor of a digital camera is 36 x 24mm and the diagonal length is 43.26mm so any distance close to this number is nearer to the ideal than the currently accepted industry standard of 50mm.

Back when film cameras were common, 45mm was the industry standard and this continued as reflex cameras needed extra space to fit a mirror. However, as mirrorless cameras become more popular again, there has been a need to return to this industry standard…which is the impetus for the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE. With less distortion than a 35mm lens and wider angles than a 55mm lens, the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE is a perfect lens for portraits, landscapes, architecture photography, and pictures of pets.
