Cruise along Hong Kong’s urban landscape with this fresh new video taken with the Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens.
With the *Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens* mounted on a mostly hand-held Sony a7 camera, the footage was taken around Hong Kong’s Central district and at Tsim Sha Tsui. Special aperture plates were used with the lens, rendering cool bokeh effects. Notice how the focusing adds drama and how the triangular and cross-shaped bokeh adds flair to the shots.
Thanks to Miki & Angelica, our friends from Plastic Cruisers who strolled with their penny boards for the video.
