    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Incredible shots previous five photos prior to my "Iris Stack" post!

    Keith, I do not know if I will ever be able to take a shot like that, I do believe it is time I get one of those IGBW3528 lens!

    . . . . . on a serious note, I really love the photo, and I love the bokeh circles from the lens. Also a serious question, could this be considered a blend?


    Jerry, love the shot, could be painted etched or frosted glass and has a lovely soft look . . . . . I love the glow of the flower itself! Very nice . . . . .

    Richie, Lovely bokeh, and love the mirrored effect!

    Michiel, the passing truck is great, love the colors and the simplicity of the side of a building with the passing truck. Wonderful color combination . . . . . just lucky or did you wait for the yellow truck?


    Rafael, very nice shot . . . . . the lighter black background with the touch of blue streak enhances the bokeh in this shot . . . . .


    Enjoy the shots everyone!

    . . . . . keep 'em coming!

    Life is Grand!

    Hi, Dan,

    that's a lovely shot ! I see that you really got the hang of this Hektor lens !
    And, the raindrops add to the pic, so don't pray for the rain to stop

    Hi Rafael,
    You are a master of Bokehgraphy. Last year, I decided to get my Panasonic 7-14mm lens after seeing your wonderful images in this Forum. By the way, your previous image by the Nikkor 105mm f2.5 lens is fantastic. I have had my copy for a long time as it is a top performer. Thanks for the inspiration. Best, Leica 77.

    Hi Keith,
    I love the bokeh produced by your ISCO GOTTINGEN .... Glass. "IGBW3528" sounds almost like a high-end German auto... Best regards, Leica 77.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Leica and Michiel.

    Michiel wondered why I had been quiet lately

    I have been on a small buying spree, which is totally due to this thread

    I recently bought my IGBW2835, and I'm still in the feeling out phase. But, today Fedex delivered two more parcels:

    Leica Hector 135/4.5 - bought because of the recent wonderful bokehgraphs by Dan

    Sigma 400mm/5.6 Mirror lens - bought because of stuff from Raf and Michiel

    So lets see if I can produce some shots

    Here is another one from the IGBW2835 - barely meets the 75/25 rule

    But I processed it in Topaz to give a bit of an HDR look

    Keith

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Wonderfull composition of colours Keith.
    Lenses, lenses ....., it is fun to check them out that's why I enjoy this LAD project so much, you have to try to get the best out of each lens.
    Thanks for that, Keith
    With the Isco you really have to search through the viewer and compose your bokeh with this lens and then it is able of remarkable results, I think.

    Today the forum was out of reach in my area, no connection possible at all.

    LAD Project Day #19
    G1 + Minolta Rokkor 45/2
    (Oké lens, but not very special, not so good as the Konica 40/1.8. I got a 50/1.7 coming )

    This is a picture, shot in my studio, through my latest sculpture wide open.

    Question: What adaptor do you use for a Micro 4/3 with a Konica 40/1.8?

    My adapter says RJ Camera and you can buy it here; http://stores.ebay.com/RJ-camera-accessory-store

    BTW your latest Hector images are lovely and not muted

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi Michiel and Keith,
    Great bokehgraphs as usual. I post a couple of test shots of bokeh with the newly acquired ISCO GOTTINGEN WESTROMAT 50/1,9. The bokeh produced by this glass is certainly different from the bokeh produced by any of the lenses I have.

    "Small Tree". G1 + 50/1,9.




    "Big Tree". G1 + 50/1,9.

    Dan, you are right, it is technically a blend - but only in the framing. I sometimes use Photoframe to frame my images, and some of their options involve blending around the edges. But my bokehgraphs themselves don't have any texture blending in them - if they do, I put them in Michael's blends thread (which I love)

    Looks very promising especially the first one. Would like to see a more traditional one with something in focus on the foreground.
    I have the Isco ....... 135/2.8 but it doesn't not have that "look" like the 35 and this one.

    Leica:

    These bokehs look very good to me (as a bokehgrapher ), so much so, I just bought the lens. Luckily I got one in M42 mount so I can use it with my Italian tilt adapter. This may replace my trusty Pentax 50/1.4

    Thanks

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    LAD Project Day #20
    G1 + Carl Zeiss Sonnar 180/2.8 (Pentacon 6 mount)

    Tomorrow I will be gone all day, so I post my LAD just over midnight to play it by the rules.

    This Photo is a detail of a bridge made by the famous Spanisch architect Calatrava. He made a serie of small bridges just outside Amsterdam.
    It was shot at around F8, I think, to show a little more of the structure.
    Such a nice lens, but so big, it is always quiet an expedition to work with it.

    I found the same thing with my Isco. The bokeh is extraordinary when seen in the viewfinder of the G1, you really can spend time getting it right.

    I haven't checked but is this latest sculpture on your web site?

    No no, I have to update my site again. You wouldn't believe it but I still don't have adequat pictures of my new objects.
    Here is a snapshot, to tightly framed, with that same Minolta lens in my studio. Made off steel and if you touch it, it shakes for half an hour like a feather.

    Hi Michiel, Keith, and Dan,
    Many thanks for your positive comments. I will continue to experient with my newly acquired ISCO ... 50/1,9 glass and post a more traditional image as per Michiel's suggestion, when I have a presentable sample image. Best, Leica 77.

    John, that is a very nice shot, a wonderful bokeh produced by the Leica 45mm lens . . . . .

    Life is Grand!

    Glad you are doing bokehgraphs with the tilt adapter - I have lots of fun with this

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I have been experimenting with these types of images but I am doing them in a full 360x180 interactive panoramic format, click the links below and when the image finishes loading, click and drag with your mouse to rotate the image. You can look in all directions-

    http://tinyurl.com/2ayyel7
    http://tinyurl.com/ybt9x8o
    http://tinyurl.com/23gj8hn

    The above images were shot using the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 on my GF1. 58 shots are required to cover the full sphere. Any suggestions on lenses I could try on my GF1 that could get me a better "blur" to "focused" ratio at longer distances from my camera?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    This is fun BBSea!
    In this case a lot of DOF, or at least not completly wide open, would be interesting too!
    Suggestions on longer lenses depends a little on the adapters you might have, for example a Canon FD 50/1.4 could be nice or 35/2 or may be Olympus lenses in that range.
    You have a good stiching program for this?
    Thanks for posting, very interesting the childrens toy view to the world!

    Hi Michiel & thanks!

    Yes, I have done thousands of "everything in focus" VR images (it is how I make my living). Thus, I have been exploring the "other end" of things like in the examples above.

    Yes I have been looking at various fast 50mm for my GF1 for this purpose. It is tough to get an idea of exactly how much difference there would be from the Lumix 20mm as I have not been able to find any examples of shots comparing the 20mm lens with various others where the distance of subject to lens is exactly the same. As what is the case when I shoot these VR images. So, I would like to try to push my focus point a bit farther out (10 feet or so?) and still get a similar effect. I hope this makes sense?

    Yes, I also shoot "gigapan" images composed of hundreds of stitched photos, so if I need to shoot a few hundred to cover a sphere (like with a 50mm or so) I can handle that.

    Yes, I am crazy maybe for wanting to do that. But I just love the looks of these bokeh images so much, I want to work on extending it "all around" if you will. After all- never try, never do?

    & you're welcome! I am glad you like the images.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    BBsea, I saw the first link. Nice. Though I am not used to seeing OOF blur when twirling the image. I am unsure if would be able watch these things more than the ones in focus.

    On the fast lenses- there are plenty of possibilities.

    25/0.95 SOM Berthiot/Angenieux 25/0.95 Type M2

    Olympus Pen F 42/1.2

    Olympus Pen F 60/1.5

    Navitron 75/1.3

    out of a very long list.

    Hi Michiel,
    Many thanks for your encouraging words! I hope the following images are a bit more traditional than the previously posted images. G1 + ISCO GOTTINGEN WESTROMAT 50/f1,9. Aperture: @f1,9. Best, Leica 77.

    Leica - these images are really good. I'm glad I ordered this lens and can't wait to try it with the tilt adapter

    This one is beautiful - the sharpness of the flower against the composition of the background works so well

    Hi Keith,
    Many thanks for your kind comments. These are just test shots and I hope to get more out of the ISCO GOTTINGEN glass through further experimentation and practice. Best regards, Leica 77.
