Another batch of pictures

Post by Araner » Thu Jul 16, 2015 6:18 pm

It's been awhile so I thought I'd post up some pictures from some recent walk abouts.

I love the glimpses of places and people otherwise never seen. Thanks, and keep shooting and posting.

I see you're beginning to use larger apertures to restrict depth of field. Excellent...(wrings hands ominously)...

Here's a film photo with the same intention:

One begins to see why there were whole rooms of people (women if you prefer accuracy over non-sexism) with pencils, paper and enough math and physics to perform basic ray-tracing. Walter Mandler designed that lens with their help, and couldn't have done it without them. It's true that computers do it better, but they do it better than the human eye, so we come to love older images as they mimic the effect of the Mark I eyeball (if you prefer the eyeball over accuracy!)

Where they worked in Wetzlar:

There are many examples of such lenses out there for those who appreciate them. Look especially for the pre-ASPH 35mm Summilux, the Summilux 75mm and the Noctilux 50mm f1.0.

Gentlemen, thank you for taking the time to view and leave such kind comments.

Chris, I'm a big fan of shallow depth of field. When it's done well it can have a very pleasing effect. Thanks for sharing your examples.

Regards,
Mike
