My new old lens, promising a special bokeh: the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Oreston 50mm f1.8 (test image gallery)

You know, I have a true passion for old vintage lenses and one of the reasons why I recently switched to the Leica SL is because this camera allows me to use almost any existing lens from the past.

The advantage of a […]

Leica SL con Helios 44-M4 58 f2 in un vortice di lavanda…

Una delle ragioni principale per cui sono passato alla Leica SL, è la possibilità di utilizzare le vecchie lenti con attacco M42, visto che ne posseggo un bel pò, frutto di tanti giri ai mercatini dell’usato tra Francia e Germania.

Detto questo, non appena ho un pò di tempo libero, prendo una lente […]

Said so, whenever I have some free time, I pick one of the M42 lenses from my special box and I’m going out […]

Impressions from Versailles, the royal palace in France

Despite being literally invaded by tourists, the Chateau of Versailles is an incredible beautiful place just few kilometers far from Paris. As you may know, I’m not a fan of architecture photography or still life and, except for few interesting detail pictures, i had fun trying to photograph the interactions between the tourists and the place, a kind of “indoor street photography”. One of the common thing I’ve seen during the tour was a lot of people just hanging around […]
