Libelulă

Getting it right was quite a challenge, but finally it’s still one of the best macros I’ve made up to day.

[The bulb experiment] Un-necessary

with one comment

Un-necessary

Copy-pasting SQL queries is an utterly un-necessary effort. Or, AS the handwritten note says it, too „nu e necesar”. 😉

50mm play

Tufănele (?)

Autumn flowers

After some tinkering with a scavenged 50mm/1.8 Helios 77M on M42 mount I finally managed to get it working with my Olympus digital camera. Get it working is a way of speaking, as I have to set up almost everything manually with it mounted on the camera (exposure is the only part on which I get feedback from the camera body).

However, photography with it is quite an interesting experience, both because of the lens itself (I dreamed of such a bright prime for quite some time) and because of all the things I have to take care of (of which manual focus is the most difficult 🙂 ). It’s not even by far as optically perfect as the kit Zuiko’s are, but this somwhat contributes to it’s overall charm.

I hope I’ll be able to come back soon with some more shots made with the 50mm Helios (ideally some portraits, but right now I kinda lack models – hint, hint 😀 ).
