Bubble monster in my hands

27일 전

It is hard to care about the focus on the butterflies when I have the bubble monster in my hands. There is just so many distractions! The drunk, swirly bokeh, the bubbles, the light... everything.
And then the little bug keeps moving and I end up with blurry image cause I just stare at all the rest around (besides that it is hard to focus on the manually on such wiggly lavender).

Yes, I love those flares! Hands up who's with me

Yep, I borrowed this Helios from my bro. We have the little brother which is also very good. But it was so nice to try out the legend. Even just for one day.
The lavender belongs to my mum and the butterflies are free as a bird :)

And lastly of course completely out of focus artistic shot. Skip the butterfly, look at the bokeh... It would have been so much better without that butterfly there. Or if it decided to sit still. :p
The bubbles and the lavender are just so dreamy...

It came to the point that I constantly carry in the bag of Helios.
He really has a special bokeh, but he gently shoots landscapes too. I like it :)


I still pick my Sigma when I go out. I'm just a macro addict... and it is faster to shoot and has auto focus :P


I do not have Sigma :-))
There are autofocus lenses that can be used in macro. But when I see this enlarged picture of another world, autofocus is not enough for me. I would like to pick out some special area or object in this macrocosm with my hands. I always use manual focus adjustment with macro
