  1. Years ago I was on the Large Format Forum, but eventually they banned me as they did not like my photography. There were a couple of guys there that really impressed me. Ed Ross was one of them. He was a modern day tintypist and wet collodion devotee. Sadly he was killed in motorcycle accident in 2016. I had saved a lot of work as it had a poetic quality that appealed to me. I decided to make a post showcasing some of it as there is no organized collection of photos I could find online. When he kicked off I guess no one paid the hosting bill and his website went poof! Strong NSFW nudes. https://danieldteolijrarchivalcollection.wordpress.com/2018/03/11/ed-ross-the-unofficial-website/
  2. So I was watching some clips from Nigella Lawson’s most recent cooking show, At My Table, which aired on BBC Two in the UK, and I’m kind of torn between it looking gorgeous and there being just too much bokeh. Sometimes it felt like there was just too much of it and that the field of sharp focus was just too small. There could be, I think, a limit after which it’s just to painful for the eyes to watch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09d980t/clips These clips are probably only visible for those in the UK. Perhaps these YouTube ones might work – YouTube will suggest other clips from the show: The cinematography was handled by Robin Fox, just as it was in the previous show, He seems like such a great guy in this little video about how Simply Nigella was shot and lit: http://www.newsshooter.com/2016/06/21/sheffield-doc-fest-2016-robin-fox-on-shooting-and-lighting-simply-nigella/ (When I was watching him speak, I was reminded of Prince William: they both seem to have this particular way of shaping their lips when talking. Don’t know if that’s something that a certain [tiny] part of the UK population do.) EDIT: Oh, no! How does this happen?! Somehow part of the title got clipped off: the title should be “Is there such a thing as ‘too much bokeh’”?
  3. I've done a quick comparison of how various 35mm cine lenses render out-of-focus blur, quite fascinating if you're a lens geek like me. :) http://cinetinker.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/comparing-lenses-blur-characteristics.html I tried to include lenses from roughly each decade since the 1930s, by Ross of London, Meyer Gorlitz, Schneider Kreuznach, Bausch & Lomb (Super Baltars), Taylor Hobson (Cooke Speed Panchros), Cooke (S4s) and Zeiss (Super Speeds and Ultra Primes), with focal lengths as close to 32 or 35 as possible. I'd like to add some more frame grabs when I get time, and at least attempt to explain some of the variations. So it's a work in progress. Any suggestions or feedback welcome!
  4. Recently acquired a very interesting lens will probably never seen. From the mind - is the standard OKC LOMO camera lens from Russian Konvas camera with OCT-18 mount. Focal length- 28 mm, aperture of- 1: 2. For 35 mm cinema fame or APC-C sensor cover. But the most interesting - on one of the glass in the center of the hole is made through a lens. Done very carefully, so it's a factory product. And most importantly, this lens gives a very interesting Image- very soft, especially in the area of the backlight, but also has the sharpness. In this case, bokeh is in the form of rings, just amazing! When injected into the frame bright source light- interesting halos formed in the shape of a circle, which gives a fabulous effect. In any case, this lens is very interesting, amazing, like a monocle, and at the same time has a good image. Very soft focus for portraits and connoisseurs of retro style. For tests i use Panasonic GH2 camera and OCT-18 adapter.
  5. Hello, you often can find old Kinoptik lenses, for example the Apochromat 25mm, in Cameflex, C-mount or other mounts for very, very high prices. What do you think about this lenses ? How is their quality and their 'look' compared to other lenses like Zeiss etc ? Why are this lenses so expensive ? Micha
