I just got a modified Helios lens with a square aperture. It gives this crazy square bokeh!

Wow!
Very nice portrait!
I love every aspect of this portrait.
I own an Helios 44-2 and I'm curious about using it on the Lens Turbo.
What's the final FL and aperture with that combo?
Was this shoot wide open?
Thank you for your kind words!
With Zhongy Lens Turbo the focal lenght of Helios will be around 41-42mm. My experience is that Lens Turbo adds some extra sharpness to the lenses but it makes them less wide than Pixco/Roxsen reducer. I had the latter and it had decent sharpness and gave a little wider view.
I think I shot this wide open or very close to wide open.

RAW post-processed with PSE 9 and Smart Photo Editor, added "fake rain" for fun.

summer schroons ... usually Fall is my time for "schroon" pics, but these showed up in my lawn this morning.

Out at a skatepark yesterday evening and took my Helios 44-2 just for shits and giggles... indoor + action shots + manual focus = I'm an idiot for thinking I could make it work!

Not my best shot of the night (I switched onto the O45 shortly after this), but I was happy that I got a half decent image!

Something from the family Arcididae, perched on a Bird of Paradise. Helios 44-2 around f2.8 (ignore the EXIF data, I forgot to switch)

E-M10 II + Helios 44-2 + Lens Turbo II focal reducer

Tons of flare, knocked it down a bit in DXO but left the fun character of this lens in tact.
