petzval 58

Wow, it's been awhile! Life has been pretty busy ever since I started trying to simplify by getting rid of as many of our belongings as many things to sort, photograph, measure, list and send off to their new really eats up one's free time! Anyways, I got my Petzval 58 lens in the mail Friday and I couldn't be more thrilled with it! Had to share!! I had backed the project through Kickstarter and had been waiting about 7 months to receive my happy to finally have it in person!

First of all, as you can see in the photo above, the lens itself is just beautiful...solid brass! We visited our favorite botanical garden this weekend to try it out. It was easier to use than I expected and I just love the fact that I can control the level of bokeh in my photos. (If you're not familiar with what a petzval lens is or what it does, read about it here.) I didn't think I would want to use the strongest bokeh setting (level 7) very often if at all, but it turned out to be so dreamy, I love it. I'm excited to take this lens on my future adventures and try it in many different settings!  On to the photos:
