I am working with a new lens. I absolutely adore it. The Soviet Helios-40-2 85mm f/1.5 was a curiosity that turned out to be very fulfilling . I have had it for all of 24 hours and it’s been amazing. It works best when I keep everything simple though. It takes me back to a recent post I did on that very subject.
In my study of photography, I have found some the best images I have seen are simple yet seductive. Some of these images just used natural light. Others were just of a person walking by a wall.

Here are some ways to take your photography and keep it seductively simple.
Here are some of the samples I have been putting up on Instagram. I am thinking about doing a review on this lens.
