Sony a7r + Nokton 35mm f1.2 II @1.2
So finally i got my hands on a Nokton 35mm f1.2. I have been eyeballing this lens ever sence i bought my A7, at one point i had pretty much decided to get it, and they pumped up the prices with close to 20% over the weekend so i got pissed and did´nt get it.
Today i got it used, good value! Though it took a 2hour car ride (one way). But i can already start to suspect that it was worth it, and that it will never leave my A7 🙂
The portrait is a test shot over a köpp (cup) of coffee and testing it out befor buying.
Stopped the car on my way home to snap the postbox pic befor heading to work. I´ll try to get some more shots done tomorrow!
The reason there is no fish in this post is obvious…
all 3 taken with Em5 + Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 @f0.95
Took another trip to “Säters fasta paviljong” The Closed-down mental asylum. Ended up with around 700 photos. About 50 made it in to the top picture.
Almost did´nt get in, kind of hard climbing over with all the prorps and camera gear. But i made it in and out in one piece.
The photo of the ladder and what not is the climb out. Alot easier then getting in.
All pics taken with Nokton 17.5mm. Top one ISO 200 @f2, the rest @f0.95 ISO 500
Gotto hit the sack now!
So here is the picture entering the “KöppWarz” competition and the timelaps ( i know its lame 😛 ) with some sort of insight to how i made the shot. Shot @f0.95 with the EM-5 + Nokton 17.5mm on a tripod, with cable trigger set on 3sec laps. made a couple of hundred shots, maybe this shot is composed out of 15 pictures total. Created in Photoshop, mostly used layers with masks and some dodge and burn, blurred some of the cups a little extra to push them back a little. And finally some highpass to add some sharpness. Clothes are made out of some crap-ass mask i bought and spray painted black and coffee bean bags. And im kind of ashamed to say i did not use realy coffee for this shot, the “coffee” flying around in the shot is actually Coke:/ Didnt have time to brew and bring Coffee so… lets just hope it wont happen again.
Edit: i won! 🙂 1-0 mtyskfoto.se – johan eric lökensson
