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!

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
