Playing with the new Nokton 25mm at around closest focus and f0.95 :smile:
Wow, very painterly.
What was in the background creating the bright spot?
There was a small gap in the bushes letting sunlight through... Oh well :smile:
Excellent shot, exactly why I love this lens!
it is like a brush, a wonderful lens capable of most beautifully rendered out of focus areas as well as being capable of crystal sharp images when required. (at only f2.8!)
It's actually quite a lot sharper stopped down than I expected - better than the 20/f1.7 and genuinely stunning at f4-5.6
wow. how close were you? Is this lens manual focus or auto, because i found with my 20mm if i go over to manual i can get even closer that what it would under AF.
The Voigt focusses very close for a non-macro - about 18cm from the film-plane.
MF only :smile: But yeah, I've noticed that with the 20/f1.7 too...
That seems to be true for the 45mm as well.
Not really worth another thread so some more in the same style :smile:
I think the first was probably at f1.2 or f1.4...
For your first photograph what, if any, post processing did you do?
I process all my photos with basically the same workflow. I get bored with editing so avoid anything beyond the fundamental techniques.
- Shoot RAW
- Develop with Aperture 3 with default adjustments.
- Adjust Levels through both RGB and individual channels (this is how I adjust contrast and fix the Aperture/GH2 colour-balance issue).
- Sharpen/crop/straighten/desaturate as suitable.
I don't think the first shot had anything other than slight Levels - no sharpening anyway...
