Homeland – Amaryllis

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

That day the weather was cold but sunny – at least  in the morning. Sun was coming in through the large windows and gave some beautiful lighting.
This Amaryllis is going on now since Christmas and it’s still not at it’s end.

As I’m currently experimenting with a Sony A7R2 and old glass, I had mounted a Contax Carl Zeiss Planar 1.4/50mm.
This lens gives some very very beautiful results. As often, I have tried a black&white version too.

I applied some presets in Nik’s Color Efex and Silver Efex applications and I’m getting more and more pleased with the results.

Enjoy 😉

New Kids on the Contax/Yashica Block …

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Some new kids arrived today to play with.

First – and hopefully the last of the kids – is a Contax Aria.

Second – trying to complete the C/Y lens lineup – are three Yashica ML kids. One is the Yashica ML 2.8/35mm – one of my favorite focal lenghts.

Another one is the Yashica ML 2.8/24mm – a highly regardes lens.

And the last one is a Yashica ML 3.5/21mm lens – the predecessor of the legendary and highly expensive Zeiss 21mm lens.

Hope, that soon I’ll have time to push a roll of film through the Aria with each of the new kids.

Enjoy 😉
