As you may know, New York Fashion Week is happening right now. So we couldn’t resist taking the Petzval Lens to meet the stars. And of course, it was only natural for us to insert the special star-shaped aperture into the lens for this evening of entertainment. Head past the jump to see the photos and a video shot at this fun-filled gala of fashion and fashionistas!
This week, we managed to sneak backstage and on the catwalk for the “Women’s Wear Daily” show of Donna Karan (DKNYC) on Wall street. We brought along a Canon Rebel T2i and the Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens and inserted the special star shaped aperture to take some bokeh-licious photos of the models preparing for their big moment (I really, really want to say ‘moment of stardom’ here but will only do so knowing how cheesy it sounds!).
We also shot this video of all the action as it happened. Get ready for pumping music if you have your speakers turned on!
If you’d like to get your hands on one of the Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lenses, pre-order now and get yours in June 2014. Find out more about the lens on our Petzval Microsite
