    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    after seeing so many fantastic flower "bokeh" shots on this thread i felt inspired to break out the lenses and see what i could do!

    the first one was taken with a GH2 and a zeiss 50/1.4 planar T*.
    the second one was taken with the GH2 and the PL 45/2.8.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Wonderful images, everyone. Outside, a few small flowers are summoning the nerve to poke their heads out into the coldest spring I can remember. I need to take some photographs close to home.

    Meanwhile here is one from Spain:

    "Gaudi's Bench", Barcelona

    G1 with Pentax 50/1.4 bokeh lens and tilt adapter

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks, everybody, for your comments on my recent shots ...

    Keith, sorry to hear that spring is slow in coming to Canada. Here's in Brussels, we are facing our second week of temperatures above 20C, and they are predicting the same at least until next thuesday. The farmers are already talking about crops in danger because of lack of rain

    And, that's an excellent pic of Gaudi's Bench. I like those shots with tilt adapters a lot. I must check where I can get one ...

    Lovely frame too

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thank you, Raf and Klaus.

    While I am enduring this winter they call spring I'm processing some images from last year. This one is the harbor at Sevastopol.
    It is the old style of bokehgraph (as this thread defines it ) - totally out of focus with lots of far right slider work in Lightroom.
    G1, bokeh lens, tilt

    thanks, Klaus, and "yes" I do really like that Trioplan very much. 75 Euro well spent, I think.
    Here's another one with that lens, also from the Botanical Garden shoot

    Very nice trioplan duo, Michiel.

    Your Clematis shot strangely resembles to one I shot a year ago
    for my FLAD with my Reflex-Nikkor 500/8

    Michiel,

    Very nice! Is that lens new to you? How would you compare it to the f3.5 version.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Yes, this one is new to me. This does not have the glow of the 135 Meyer Trioplan.
    I have three 135 Zeiss Sonnars now. I think the newer all black one is the sharpest but I think my favourite is the zebra version, especially concerning bokeh. These are both 3.5.
    I can't compare really well anymore because I lost many photographs due to a harddisc crash. Only ones left are the ones saved for the web.

    Yes Michiel, that's the one I meant (and I have)K; the Meyer Trioplan certainly has the more unique bokeh for sure.

    Nice results!!

    Been lurking around for a couple months, truly impressed with the quality of the images that have been posted. Don't know if this one is worthy, taken today as spring is finally starting to arrive. E3/Sigma 18-50-5.6

    Thanks!

    Do you have the 20/2, the 38/3.5 or the 38/2.8? Any tips (extensions, tricks, etc.) on shooting with it/them?







    Here's some of the Canon FL 58mm F/1.2 a lens that's showing itself to be much better than I expected!



    Full Image - NR Only.






    Full Image - Some Sharpening + NR






    60% Crop - Selective NR applied.



    I'm forgetting which is which but one of these is at f/1.2, one is at f/2, and one is at F/4. Probably #2 is the F/4 one....

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Good to see you found a Trioplan, Paul

    Come on, Keith, what are you waiting for ?

    Today, I went to the Garden Show, a few miles away from our village. A really nice afternoon spent,
    shooting with two vintage lenses : the Helios 44M (58/2) and the unavoidable Trioplan 100/2.8

    Here's two shots.

    (Helios)


    (Trioplan)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thank you Keith, Michiel & Rafael.

    Yes Keith you really need one; it's an amazing lens. The one I got was cheap but the helicoid was in rough shape. It had evidently set in its' box for decades and all of the grease must have congealed making it almost impossible to focus. When the wife wasn't looking I stuck it in the oven preheated to 120F and left it there for about an hour. That treatment helped it immensely. Do any of you know of anyone capable of a CLA on the Trioplan?

    @ Raf; That Helios bokeh is sure creamy smooth and that last Trioplan is gorgeous.

    @ Michiel; I really like the second one in your post 3839 a lot It looks like a watercolor.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I realized that I had only used my Coma tilt adapter with 50mm or less. So I took this one with a Hanimex 135/3.5. Dull day here again, hence the black and white - but you get a clear idea of how advanced (?) our tree leaves are.
