Vintage lenses on modern cameras
I wrote a six page article for the UK Amateur Photographer Magazine (23 April 2016 issue) on using old “legacy” lenses on modern DSLR and mirrorless cameras. (*This does not include rangefinder cameras without Live View such as the Leica M8 and Leica M9).
Rather than repeat myself I have linked the full article below.
The images used for the article are quite old as they date back to my pre-Leica days when I was using a Nikon D800 DSLR, 2012-2013 mostly I think.
Here is a more recent photo using the same equipment with Stacey
The article also describes a photography technique which was my norm before I moved to Leica cameras and that was “Freelensing”. I have written an article on this in the past so I have linked it below for perhaps better image examples.
Old habits die hard
Shortly after the article was published I was explaining to model Elle how freelensing works. As a result here is freelensing image from a few weeks ago before I went to Poland.
Freelensing on film
Finally, here are a few freelensing photos closer to my heart. They are all shot on film cameras with model Tegan. (My apologies for the grain! It was expired film).
