MEET A PRO
PARIS THROUGH A LENS
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.
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.
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.
