At what aperture are most of your landscape shots?

Wow, Walt . . . according to that graph, you took 4 pictures last year at a focal length of 6 millimeters! I didn't know they even had lenses that wide.

I had one of the lens settings wrong. Fixed it now. Had to set it to 35mm Equiv.

Thanks Tom.

Theres a neat app called Exposure Plot that you can get here (external link) that graphs 4 different aspects of your pictures

Focal length, aperture, ISO and shutter speed.

Here's mine on my current pictures - taken this year.

Easily gets the answer for you to the OP.

While that can be helpful, it's not necessarily accurate(for this scenario). Just because you shot 40ish shots at 28mm-f/8, doesn't mean they were landscapes.

It can be accurate. You get to choose which files/folders you want to include in your analysis.

I chose everything.

Just choose your landscape folders and its accurate.

for me mainly between f5.6-f11 & sometimes f16 when I want low speed or night shots stars.

Recently I've tried some 85mm @f1.4 (with my Rokinon + ND8 filter)... and it's excellent, more a painterly style on most of the image (a small bridge, which I focused on, under large trees) ! Will use it again at f1.4... Before, I used it only for portraits.

I just checked this program out, thanks for sharing it.

Bit disappointed it only reads the exif data from jpeg since I mostly shoot RAW. I can see how being able to choice to only one type of file format could be useful(if it could read them all).

It also seems to do some weird stuff with shots that have been re-sized. I had focal lengths up to 6400mm, so I took a look at highest one. It was shot at 600mm with my 1DIV (780mm at 35mm equiv) it was slightly cropped but heavily down sized. I checked some more and even if not cropped at all re-sizing gives a long focal length for example all my recent shots I took at 300mm on my 1DIV that I re-sized to 1024 on the long end show up as 1590mm.

The program doesn't let me choose multiple folders(aside from sub folders) so I'm limited on what I can analyse without moving things.

Because of those things it becomes more of a neat novelty than anything actually useful for me.

Yeah, he says in the help file that cropped images may be troublesome if the crop program edits the exif data

===============

Unexpected results:
The Path List is there for debug options, if you find some unexpected results, say you're charts show some 1600mm images, but you don't have a lens like that.
Now you can use the Path List to find out where the 1600mm files are located.
Place a check mark at he "Focal length" option (at the bottom of the Path List tab), and start analyzing, the created sorted list shows the lens length followed by path, filename, make and model.
If you crop an image some programs will alter the focal lens tag in the EXIF, a 1600mm could be a cropped image made with a much shorter lens.

f2.8-f16, depending on the image/subject. Like most of my other photos.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

Oops forgot, I usually use f5.6-f11(sometimes higher if needed for exposure time). My TS-E can help me keep from needing to stop to much which nice for minimizing diffraction and keep shutter speed up if desired(windy).

The thing is PS doesn't appear to change the focal lens tag on re-size and/or crop. The focal length error does calculate out to be about the same amount I re-sized.

Showing the equivalent focal length for the crop would be handy tool though.

FYI there is a lightroom plugin that can plot the aperture/focal length/shutter speed too

It doesn't give you a graph, but in Lightroom you can open the Library module, check View-Show Filter Bar. On the Filter bar check Metadata. By right clicking on the columns you can get Camera, Lens, ISO, Aperture, etc.

That's pretty cool. Too bad I don't have LR!

mostly f/32 or f/45 now a days since I'm shooting LF for landscape
on 35mm/FF I have no problem shooting from f/0.95 all the way to f/22

The focal length of the iPhone camera is about 4 mm.
Is this an answer?
