Arles Coliseum Steps

Yesterday evening I decided to leave my camera backpack in the room, and I headed out to explore Arles with one lens. This was my 35mm Zeiss f/1.4.

I set the lens wide open at f/1.4, cranked the ISO, put the camera on aperture priority, and decided to otherwise leave exposure alone. One lens and one aperture setting is sometimes a useful exercise. I had fun with my newfound “lightness of being” and, as you can see in this image, decided to play with depth-of-field.

Sometimes indeed less is more.
