Obligatory Flower Shot

Obligatory flower shot

 Not the most exciting shot in the world but one I shared online recently as a demonstration of background blur using film.

This is about as close as the Voigtlander can focus and was shot wide open at f/1.4 (IIRC). While it can throw backgrounds out of focus very nicely, it’s no bokeh-monster that will blur them to oblivion. You have to be aware of what’s behind the subject but fortunately a rangefinder is perfect for that.

What I think I like the most though is the sharpness. Even wide open like this one the images have a crispness to them that really makes details stand out. Assuming I nail the focus of course!
