    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Had an "EUREKA" moment today, as I found out that I could use some parts I had sitting around could be used to give that Quartz f1.0 Singlet Lens a new professional housing...did it work?







    and as a by product the sharpness can also be controlled now. Focus range is 2" to infinity (5cm to infinity for the metric guys like me)

    I really like these images and I think a few people on the site will too. Can you show a bit more technical info and the experimental set up you use. Mike Regnier over in the blends thread would love this, I think.

    I have some bits and pieces lying around and may have a crack at doing it.

    Well, all I can say is: just an old enlarger lens stripped off all the glass, a different lens inserted and then that mounted onto a focusing helicoid fitting mft cameras is all I did. The rest is "trade secret"

    Hi Keith,
    Your kind comments are very much appreciated. When I was a university student, I enjoyed spending some evening hours in the darkroom (located at one of the student activities buildings on campus) making black and white prints. It was so much fun to interact with other students, comparing the prints we all produced. Back then, some of the photographers we admired most included Ansel Adams, Cartier Bresson, David Douglas Duncan, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon to name only a few. This Forum enables us to see so many fine works from all over the world. Needless to say, this Bokeh Thread that you initiated is indeed such a wonderful place for many of us to visit! Best regards, Leica 77.

    Hi Keith,
    The duality of sharpness and bokeh is well represented in your images. The ISCO GOTTINGEN lens + Tilt Adapter combo is an excellent technique.

    BTW, I forgot to mention some other favorite photographers -- Ernst Haas, Elliott Erwitt, Eugene Smith, etc... Best, Leica 77.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Leica, that one really shows the strong but subtle structure of the bokeh in this lens.

    Here is another one from my Isco 50/1.9, again with the tilt adapter - I wonder if Dan has got his hands on one of these lenses yet (but he is already showing that the CV 40/1.4 is no slouch!)

    Hi Keith,
    Wow! There is so much happening in this image. I especially like the fine bokeh in the foreground. Best, Leica 77.

    Hi Dan,
    I agree with Keith that "the CV 40/1.4 is no slouch!". It produces pleasing bokeh. Hopefully, it will go into my wish list. Best, Leica 77.

    Another one with the GF1 and a Minolta 50mm 1:1.4 lens that I paid 25 bucks for. Not bad for such a cheap lens.

    Leica great shot of the rose with the Summicron R 50mm f2 . . . . .
    . . . . . both of you pulling out the ISCO GOTTINGEN 50/1.9 with some super shots! Outstanding!

    Keith the ISCO GOTTINGEN is on my wish list for the moment, putting my spare change away for the moment for something that may come available in the near future . . . . .

    Welcome JDavila, love your cockpit shot with the bokeh it is very nice . . . . .
    . . . . . and the picture of the lovely lady with the soft bokeh as well!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Dan - re "daisies", the bokeh has vibrance, it seems to be moving. I have to use my CV 40 more.

    Here is another from the Isco 50/1.9 plus tilt

    I agree, but the bokeh is mostly in your brain, not that there is anything wrong with that :sleep006::sleep006:

    Beautiful Shot! Wonderful subject matter, composition, color and clarity, sharp, and after thinking about lifting the glass . . . . . noticed the bokeh!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Well, quite a bunch of nice shots to drool about here ... can't really concentrate on work, missing way too much here

    Keith: that's a pretty interesting tilting adapter, need to try that one out too.

    It's Rudbeckia blossoming time here also now, so I need to get out and shoot some more! They have a "built in" secret, they look very differently to bees and butterflies than to us as they have a hidden pattern only visible in ultraviolet (UV) light (this is a preproduction shot from a recent BBC project). This is a mapped shot, left part what we see, right part + butterfly how they might see it (UV mapped in as blue)

    Hi Dan,
    Great posts in this Bokeh thread and the Contax G Lenses thread as well. This particular one is wonderful as Keith has said -- " ... it seems to be moving ...". I will definitely get one of these Nokton lenses. Best, Leica 77.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Just to stimulate the global economy, I acquired another ISCO lens -- ISCO GOTTINGEN EDIXA - ISCOTAR 1:2,8/50. Made in Germany. Here are a couple of test shots:






    This lens is really tiny compared to the IGW 50/1.9 lens.

    It has already been broadcast, the DVD + Blue Ray are already out by now (only Europe version). http://photographyoftheinvisibleworl...orlds-dvd.html

    Discovery Channel will air it sometime as it was a co-production with them, but I don't have details.

    Leica - looks like you have discovered another performer in the Isco family - this is going to give Dan a headache

    Got my ZM 50mm f/1.5 C-Sonnar T* Today

    Wonderful Lens
    It "Draws" beautifully IMO
    Wonderful Colors too.
    I only adj contrast and sharpened, before I converted the raw to jpg.

    Hi Keith,
    Many thanks for your positive comments! Two more ISCO GOTTINGEN lenses (100mm and 135mm) should be arriving here soon. As you say, the ISCO family seems to be growing. Best, Leica 77.

    Hi M5-Guy,
    Great capture! I have an older version of the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 50/1,5 lens. It also produces pleasing bokeh. Best, Leica 77.

    f/4 I think


    Shoot in raw, and developed and converted in ACDSee Pro 3
    M5-Guy, very nice shots with the 35/1.4!

    I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am the 40/1.4!
