Bokeh

This gallery contains 9 photos.

The bokeh of a lens is by some described as an esoteric lens trait. I’m not one of those. I rather select lenses with ‘good’ bokeh over ones with ‘bad’ bokeh and try to find out the aperture settings where … Continue reading

This gallery contains 5 photos.

While browsing through my hard drive yesterday I stumbled over some poppy images shot in Usedom last year with the old AF 180mm/2.8 ED at 1.5m distance with aperture settings from f/2.8 to f/20. I really like how the background … Continue reading
