I was given a Nikon 50 mm 1.4 ai lens. Upon inspection I notice it had one serious issue, it only shot at f/1.4. The aperture ring is broken. So I cleaned it up and decided it was a perfect lens for my Sony A7. It is a fantastic limitation. It is also a fantastic challenge. Here is one of my first images after cleaning it up in monochromatic fashion.
I have been nominated for the black and white challenge by Scott Wyden. The deal is that for 5 days you must post a black and white image and each day nominate another photographer to do the same. Today is day 1 of 5 for me. Today I will nominate Shannon Stukes for the challenge.
