A few weeks ago we interviewed one our first Petzval Lens Artists,NYC dweller and photographer, Coco Alexander. She spoke to us about her journey into life as a photographer and after taking some portrait shots, her thoughts on our new Lomography X Zenit Petzval Art Lens.
Coco has done another shoot using the Petzval Art lens, this time with the four special aperture plates included in the package – here’s what she created!
The Petzval Lens special aperture plates come in teardrop, hexagon and star shapes and one blank (for your own customizable design).

Experiment with tear dropped leaves, use the star for night time or cut your own original design into the customizable plate!
