Dutch hobby photographer. Loves bokeh, shallow depth of field, surrealistic landscapes, sunrises and sundowns, wide aspect ratio's, cinematic shots and nature shots. I do not prefer to use a tripod and I never use a flash. At the moment I only use prime lenses.
I like to collect old lenses to experiment with on my camera. Especially the lenses with their own character, like swirly bokeh and the Zeiss 3D pop effect. However, I also use ''normal'' digital lenses. My main points for a lens are sharpness wide open and bokeh. My favourite focal length is around 50mm and I rarely use lenses not wide open, only landscapes I stop down.
I buy/sell, repair and use the old lenses. I only use old lenses on a digital body, I do not use film or anything. If it looks like it, it is just done in post production.

If you have any questions about the old manual lenses, feel free to ask. Also about other things.
I can't find to button to post a new journal or status update. I can only edit old posts and statuses. Please help me.
THANKS! It works!
I still wonder why I can't find the button anymore in the browser. Is that totally gone since the update or is it also hidden somewhere? I tried many times to find it, but in browser I can't find the journal and status button.
