Default Portraits of Charly using a 35mm Lamegon

Buddy of mine, Charles "Charly" Djivanidis, french chanson singer and retired restaurant chef, trained by Paul Bocuse.

It just so happened, so I had to use what I had with me, a Carl Zeiss Jena 35mm Lamegon lens on Pana GH4, shot at approx f5.6










[This lens was once made for highest resolution copies of documents to microfiche, I have adapted it to use on modern digital cameras. Resolution above 200lppm from what I could find out. Also used in larger form as a high resolution aerial reconnaissance lens for up to 284x284mm film format. This one covers 24x36mm]

Almost too sharp!
Seems to be an excellent lens

Thanks Asher! Was unplanned, but the light was just too nice to not have tried it...

Agreed Nicholas, I would have never even tried that with a female, but males look good
when all the masculine attributes get enhanced ;-)

[I would have used a much faster lens, wider open, if I had one on hand then...]
