Years after my grand-father died, my uncle gifted me with my grand-father’s old film camera gear. A few of the Nikromat lens mounts work with my current digital film camera, but it’s challenging to use since most of the focus and exposure is manual. It’s kind of useful though, to help me to get in touch with the more technical side of photography. This is my first 50mm f1.4 lens and I’m really happy with it. What adds to the softness is the little bit of spidery fungus growing in between the layers of glass, so it’s quite forgiving as well.
My sister is a great model and is a lot of fun to hang around with too, even though we have an age gap of more than ten years. It didn’t take a lot to convince her to let me photograph her in Tokai Arboretum one afternoon.
