earlier in march i found a screamin’ deal on a new lens on ebay. at first i was hesitant but the price couldn’t be passed up, just for the adventure.
it’s been a great learning adventure. the lens is from an old olympus film camera. so it takes an adapter to actually put it on my digital slr. because of the adapter, there’s no connection between the camera and the lens. it’s completely manual, no auto white balance, no aperture mode. i spend a ton of time trying to get the exposure right. so for the price, the knowledge alone has been worth it. and i hope to start trying some portraits soon.
