    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks everyone.

    @ Rafael, yes I was around at the time. Have been busy
    @ Keith, I am not sure I can recommend this philosopher. Didn't do any rereading on it. The title was good because everybody was looking for miracles at the time
    @Tesselator, I like nr3 from your serie, the fairytale atmosphere.

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for the note. It is hard to find a right window for frontal bokehgraphy. I'll try to do more.

    It is challenging but you guys have posted fantastic bokeh photos. It was the major reason why I bought my G2 a few months ago, plus lens.

    Best,

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks for your comment, Keith !

    Your "tree steps to heaven" intrigues me !
    You've taken this shot with a "tilt adapter".
    I didn't know these exist in the first place, but just saw on Ebay that Kipon offers them even for Nikon F-mount.

    Is yours from Kipon, Keith ?
    Could you share your impressions about this adapter, specifically, does it focus to infinity ? (if you think it's necessary, in a separate topic ?)

    Hi Rafael + 1 Very intriqueging that picture!

    Since Keith might still be snoring in Canada, here is the link of the italian Tilt adapter we both have, I think. It exists in different mounts. So you can even use it as a regular adapter.

    Thanks, Michiel, for that link !
    I've checked that site, but it says "product not available".
    I have found that Kipon manufacturer/supplier offering some adapters on Ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Arrival-Kipo...item483a9c93fe

    Maybe, I'll just order one from here, although the timing is bad with very long delivery times from Asia to Europe due to the Holiday Season :-((

    Hi Raf - I've just woken up

    The Kipon looks interesting, but from what I see it has 8 degrees of tilt and Adriano's has 30 degrees

    It's worth calling Adriano or e-mailing as sometimes his web site may not represent the true situation.

    I use the adapter mainly with my Pentax 50/1.4 M42 lens. I seem to be able to get beyond infinity - which yields two kinds of bokeh. There is a discussion on this (check Post # 1301 with the dog picture)

    There are a few people on this forum that use the Italian adapter and are very pleased with it.

    Keith

    Good morning, thus, Keith !
    Thanks for the info, I'll drop Adriano an e-mail and see what comes out.
    8 instead of 30 is a real big difference.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    A new lens found its way to La Hulpe
    A Kodak Retina Tele-Xenar 135/4 from Schneider Kreuznach in DKL mount, for which I found a 4/3 adapter in the UK.

    So, I'm glad to present to you a first bokeh shot with this lens on my G1



    I'll update my FLAD project as soon as the weather allows for some more creative shots

    Hi Keith,
    In the world of literary and creative writing, one writes, edits, and re-edits until one is satisfied with one's writing. That seems to be part of their professional practice and their professionalism... Best regards,

    Hi, Dan, great shot !

    In our little village, we are facing the second wave of snow for this winter, and we are only 17/12 today.

    Here's a moody shot from light night, with the G1 and a Nikkor 24/2.0 with the "Dream #3" filter

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    There is so much going on in my studio that it is a dusty mess at the moment.
    We are building a balcony in the space and I am preparing for an exhibition.

    But I saw it as an opportunity to photograph some dusty stilllifes without moving a thing with my new $ 18,- Aus Jena (Zeiss) Pancolar 50/2 from Ebay in the States. It has got an aperture ring that does not move so I can only shoot it wide open. Time to get the screwdriver out!
    Excuse me for the amount but I like it as a serie for the atmosphere and what that lens does.

    And one more, the best one actually, with that same lens shot by my Canadian relative Graig Hulton at a lovely dinner.

    Hi, Michiel,

    I absolutely love your "strak in de lak".

    I've been running around with my Retina Tele-Xenar all morning
    This is the shot I loike most :



    For 49.00 Euro, I think the lens is just excellent.
    A drawback, however, the minimum focus distance is 4m. Not really good for a FLAD

    C U soon,

    Interesting and exotic lens (mount). Opens up another world of lenses

    Very nice picture and more then enough bokeh possibilitys for your FLAD project. You can get closer with an ext. tube but that is probably hard to find.

    Nice one Peter! Like looking from behind a demolished curtain.
    I do have that lens also but never used it for bokeh.

    Well done.

    Cheers, Michiel

    Now we have to figure out if Tessellator is Dan Brown in disguise?

    Muahahahaaaa... I'll never tell!

    But you can spread the rumor... Dan Brown shoots a GH1 and religiously promotes ancient MF glass.

    Thanks Michiel.

    I would say it is a first for me to use it for such a shot and a couple I tried out earlier in that shoot didn't come anywhere near making the grade. I would probably class getting a great bokeh shot out of the 9-18mm as a struggle.

    Normally, I would have had my Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 with me but I wanted to pack something smaller and wider in the bag for that day.

    Cheers

    +1, Peter

    I've just looked at what the lens was I have it too - never done a bokeh, we learn everyday
