My Exploration

Recently I acquired a Pentax 50mm 1.4 lens. This is a vintage lens with a really  good reputation for its ability to create interesting images.

I impatiently awaited its arrival as I really wanted to see if I made the right choice.

I must admit, I immediately fall in love with it. Despite being a manual lens, it is very easy to use.

I used only selective focus with my aperture set to 1.4.  I also used 36mm extension tube to get closer to my subjects.

My verdict

It’s quite easy to capture a very dramatic effect especially with strong directional light. I love the soft painterly effect this lens produce. I love its bokeh.

For now this is my favorite lens.

Fingers crossed for some good stuff ahead!
