RE: First Time Helios!
Ohhh Master Helios! Which one did you get?
I think you will love it with time. It takes a bit of getting used to learning how it works. And I like the photos you took! Not many bubbly bokeh, but it has the nice soft effect.
Many thanks @ewkaw!
I have 44M-4, I would like to have the same result that you had in your photo to a poppy, but I think it's really difficult without a full frame or a speedbooster Bubble bath
Spotlights - Poppies and Helios
do you have any advice to give me in particular?
I am no expert and I didn't shoot much with it yet too.
The Poppy was shot with my brother's lens. It is the master of bokeh and is more expensive too.
Try with different light, especially on the background. Dappled sunlight though the trees or grasses can work really well. I noticed that the distance between the object and the background is really important too.
Most of all have fun and experiment :) You will like it!
if you want some crazy results you can flip the front glass, it is easy and gives some crazy results. i had a video on dtube of that, maybe i should post it again on 3speak
it would be interesting to see the video, if you still have it or intend to reload it tag me in the post please!
