Vintage Film Lenses

November 5, 2017


I've been getting crazy on Ebay and picking up vintage film lenses to use on my big DSLR camera bodies.  They're 100% manual setting and focus, but they create some pretty cool effects.  This one is a Russian made Helios 44-2 58mm f/2.  It creates that wild swirly Boken in the background.  I'm getting quicker at catching my fast moving kids with the manual focus, but I'm not quite ready to take it to a family session unless the kids are at least over 8 years old, lol!

A fun way to push creativity and make some unique images!  In a world where everything is digitized, it's fun to see the texture of vintage glass on a image.

Happy shooting!
