    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Klaus, beautiful shots! Absolutely Love the Candle . . . . . Amazing!

    . . . . . also the shot of the roses above with the snow was a treat!

    Lots of great bokeh being posted the last few weeks and I have not provided much commentary.

    I took a fall a few weeks back and although nothing was broken it has slowed me down considerably. I am just starting to get back to a normal range of motion and hopefully back into my normal daily routine.

    I'm sure you'll be back to "normal operations" soon, Dan.

    I have been working selective focus and also subject motion. perhaps not scads of Bokeh but in my mind it seemed to fit. Joe

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Well, this one is has more motion blur than bokeh. Hopefully it falls within the definition of a bokehgraph

    I hope to get many more images while skiing in the new year!

    Cheers,

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    . . . . . thanks to Rafael, Klaus, Michiel, Keith, Leica, & Paul for your kind messages that you have passed along! They are appreciated and welcome. At 59 years old I am certainly not a old man, but I will testify that the recuperating powers enjoyed in my younger years have faded some as I have aged . . . . .

    . . . . . as long as I'm breathing with functional capacity I'm not going to complain (much).

    The lesson learned from this particular mishap was do not save/protect the camera, it can be replaced and cost less to fix, with less pain, then this 59 year old body.

    . . . . . now back to bokeh . . . . .

    Dan, you're back! Great bokeh with the little red flowers!

    @ Klaus, one can feel the cold with this moonphoto.
    Also a very nice serie of simple coloured abstracts in red and blue and the very appropriate candlelight.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi Leica77, into the Russian Helios now? Nice one! (Still don't have it)

    Here is one with an (former) East German lens. It can focus as close as less then 25 cm.

    Hi Michiel,
    The close-focusing capability of your Pentacon glass is certainly a big plus. The bokeh is also quite pleasing.

    As to the Helios Russian lens, I just purchased it a few days ago to try it out. It is supposed to be a copy of the Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 58/2. The CZJ Biotar (58/2) is on order and it should come to my mailbox soon. It also so happened that I saw another Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar -- 75mm f1.5. Since the price was about 1/4 of what is usually listed on eBay (evilBay to you), I had to get it to beef up my bokeh lens collection. What I need to get is an Exakta -> m4/3 lens adapter to enjoy using the 75mm Biotar on my G1 and GF1 camera bodies.

    As you know, I am quite fond of the ISCO Gottingen lenses and I am curious as to discover how the Helios glass and the Biotars compare with ISG glasses in terms of bokeh. They seem to be in the same sort of genre to produce busy bokeh. Best regards,

    As soon as I find an Exakta -> m4/3 lens adapter, I will take test shots with the 75 Biotar. Best regards,

    Hi, Leica77

    plenty of those Exakta adapters show up on EBay when you search with
    "Exakta micro4/3".

    I bought the cheapest one I could find a few months ago, and it does the job perfectly !

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Today, I received a parcel containing a Kodak Retina Reflex S and two lenses.
    A Schneider Kreuznach Retina Xenar 50/2.8 and a SK Retina Tele-Xenar, of which I already own a copy, and that will go to sales.

    I couldn't wait to put it under the Christmas tree, so I just picked the Xenar 50/2.8 and run around in the garden to test it.

    Here's two pics that show the bokeh :





    These lenses are in the less know DKL mount. I have a few more coming this way for the holidays, so stay tuned for more

    I love your bokehgraphs, especially the first one with quite subtle bokeh. With your new Christmas presents, we expect to see more of your beautiful images. Best wishes for the Festive Season!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Guys, I see a lot of good shot - productive pre Christmas!! Well done!!

    Russian glass is nice, I have the Helios 40-2 f1.5 75mm, great but way too heavy and then the Zeiss Jena Biotar f1.5 / 75mm - a simple wonderful lens (mine is the slim version, the best IMHO), swirly and bokehlicious!

    Here is a test shot using my newly acquired early Christmas present -- Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 7,5cm f1,5. I was lucky to find an Exakta -> micro 4/3 lens adapter for this lens.

    Hi Doc Klaus,
    It's always nice to read your comments in this thread. Here is one more test shot with the Carl Zeiss Jena 7,5cm f1,5 glass. I still have to get used to this wonderful lens through lots of practice. One amazing attribute of this lens is that it has 18 iris blades, thus being capable of creating a circular lens opening continuously from f1.5 to f22.

    Your lenticular (cat's eye) bokeh is very nice! You must have used a fast lens. Best regards,

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    25mm f1.4 ebay lens, to be precise

    Your latest additions to this thread were all great.
    I especially like the last one. You did a great job with the colours there.

    Yes, a great lens and obviously came into very capable hands!! Do you have the "fat" or "slim" version?

    @Olli: nicely done!

    @Raf: very nice lenses the Xenars, you'll see soon. Very sharp and sometimes a bit harsh/noisy bokeh.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi Doc Klaus and Oliver,
    Thanks so much for your positive and kind comments. The Carl Zeiss Jena 7,5mm lens I recently purchased is the slim one. Oliver, your fast 25mm f1.4 lens must be a fun lens to use. Best wishes to both of you for the Holiday Season!

    Hi All,

    Noticed some strange and interesting colours whilst helping my wife wrap some pressies with Hologromatic wrapping paper, so i swiped a peice and scuttled off to photograph it

    ISO 800 1/10sec F5.6 35mm


    ISO 800 1/5sec F5.6 -0.3EV 35mm


    Happy Christmas to everyone & hope you get some new camera bits for xmas.

    J.
