Sir Paul here must be trying his best to learn his darling wife's self-portrait stance!
Aside from being a musician, animal rights activist, and wife of a Beatles member, Linda Louise Eastman McCartney is remembered as one of the impressive photographers of the 1960s music scene. Known for her candid and un-posed style, it’s not at all surprising to find that she had taken such a comic and endearing self-portrait with her husband doing his best imitation of her shooting stance! Only goes to show what an amazing couple they made back then, don’t you think?

The Glastonbury Festival is arguably one of the most anticipated and renowned music festivals in the world. It is a joy to be able to watch it, and a privilege to capture scenes on and off stage. Apart from creating beautiful portraits, the Petzval Lens is great for adding an albeit subtle drama to the already spectacular scenes of music festivals. Japanese photographer Taio Konishi photographed this year's Glastonbury with a Petzval 85mm Lens, and here are some of the photos. He also talks about his Petzval-meets-Glastonbury experience in this exclusive.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
A couple of years ago marcus_loves_film had the opportunity to spend time at a lodge more than half a century old in Woodruff, Wisconsin. Through these photographs, he had documented one night of his stay.
