Its been an interesting week in my photography world, here in NJ. The weather has been decent and an excellent time for photography. I recently acquired a new lens. I learned about this lens from a new online friend Cory Lum. I was telling him about my desire to own a Nikon 135mm F2 DC and he suggested I try a Russian Helios 85mm 1.5. I researched it and purchased it. I love a good experiment. So for “The One Aperture Challenge” we have the Tardis shot with the Helios in the forest. Is an excellent lens for me, bokelicious and fun.
The important thing about this lens is that its F1.5 which is a nice big aperture. So shots are nice and artistic. The bokeh the Helios 85mm 1.5 produces wide open is uncanny. I had the bear out for my One Object Challenge, in the same forest as I had the Tardis. By the time I took these pictures I had Spend a week with the lens and was very familiar with it. It is now one of my favorites. I need to do some proper portraits . I will be shooting with this lens a lot in the near future. It works well for my daily photography. I have few photography jobs coming up, so I will just be doing reviews and this lens will be one of them.
I will be doing a proper review of this lens soon. The Helios is fascinating. Out of the other lenses I got in the past 365 days, this is the mos interesting. I am not exactly going to use it for professional work, it will be one of my fun artistic lenses.
