Lomography's Optics Head Cat Ong shot moving lights, shadows and distant views to test the optic capacities of the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M. Though drawn to precise zone focusing and aperture values, he tried to be more intuitive while walking around town with the Minitar-1 Art Lens. He took incredibly detailed photos under the Hong Kong sun and through the haze of Vienna.
The premium New Petzval Lens allows you to set your subject against a soft, beautiful background of bokeh. But how about making the bokeh even more interesting by using shapes? Simply use the special aperture plates exclusively made for the Petzval and have fun!
