The New Petzval Lens Through the Seasons


The New Petzval Lens is not only known for its elegant brass exterior, but most importantly for the swirly bokeh effect it can bring to photographs. It makes a great portrait lens and performs exceptionally when taking photos of subjects against textured or lit backgrounds, day or night. And it does all these, in wet or dry weather; in any season – winter, spring, summer, or fall.

And to prove what a trusty not to mention lovely companion the New Petzval Lens is, here are photos taken in all four seasons and under different conditions. Feast your eyes on images of winter, spring, summer, and fall, as seen through the eyes of the Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens.

Spring is that time of the year when everything’s in full bloom – the flowers are at their most beautiful and green is at its most vibrant. Take in the beauty of spring with the photos below.

Summer, although the warmest of seasons, is a favorite of many, for it means that it’s time to frolic in the sun or to hit the beach. It’s the perfect excuse to go out and have the time of your life.

You know that autumn is coming when the air becomes a bit cooler and the leaves start falling. The lush greens are replaced by earthly browns, and the change somehow triggers a feeling of melancholy. Despite the absence of vibrant colors, fall is beautiful, but mysterious in a way. It is a quiet prelude to a sweeping transformation, a 360 degree turn of the seasons.

Do you want to build a snowman? You can only build one in winter, when the driveways are covered in snow and the air is as cold as ice. You’ll need coats, sweaters, bonnets, gloves and scarves, and if you’re lucky you’ll need them all at the same time. In many places, winter signifies the start of the holidays, the season to be jolly.
