About this blog

So, this is the place on the web where I will give an account of my daily life. Will it be interesting? I don't know. But at least I know I will post the things which interest me.

Stary stary night

Today my Industar-61-LZ arrived. It's an M42 lens from the former Soviet Union, and it's said to be the best FSU lens ever. Well, I don't know, and I don't know the value of such a title, because I own this lens about two hours now. But I bought it because of it's weird bokeh highlights when used at f5.6-f8. The iris is star-shaped in that aperture range, so it delivers star-shaped highlights. And I shot this example, just to show you!

Nice. I saw the unusual diaphragm on the lens on the web and was searching around for a pic of the bokeh.
