Serenity Circle - April 2019
The still life images in this post were captured using the Sol 45. It's an interesting lens and one that takes a bit of getting used to; however, it's worth the effort learning if you like the effect it produces. I really enjoy
using this lens for still life and believe it lends itself well to the old-worldly style of photography I adore. I also love the slightly serene and dreamy quality you can achieve using this particular lens as well. It really helps me capture how I see and feel the world around me.... I've even given it a new name and nicknamed it "Meraki 45!"
Doing something with total love and pure soul;
It is leaving a little piece of yourself in your creative work.
Finally, the nature image directly below was captured 'indoors' using my Velvet 56 - another favourite lens of mine. The Velvet 56 is another manual lens and takes a little getting used to, but so worth the effort - particularly if you love smooth buttery bokeh.
