Floral Fantasies with Lomography Art Lenses

Flowers make wonderful photographic subjects: colorful blossom basking in sunlight, blades of grass damp with dewdrops. All emit a calming feeling that only the beauty of nature can give. The wind is crisp and chilly, and warmer seasons seem so far away. To bring some color to lingering winter days, allow us to whisk you off on a floral fantasy with Lomography Art Lenses: the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 and the Petzval 85 and Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lenses.

Ethereal with the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens

The Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens gives you the option to soften or sharpen your focus. With a Waterhouse Aperture System ranging from f/2.9 to f/16 and specially designed plates, it’s the perfect choice if you want to shoot deep, textured backgrounds that are rarely achieved in photography. To achieve a silky-soft look, shoot at apertures below f/4. For sharper definition and contrast, shoot from f/5.6 onwards.

Swirly with the Petzval Art Lenses

Ideal for when you want your subject to shine, the Petzval 85 focuses sharply in the center, with a swirl of bokeh in the background. If you want to shoot soft photos with strong bokeh, shoot with an open aperture. Keep the aperture close if you want crystal clear images with incredible sharpness.

The Petzval 58 Bokeh Control, on the other hand, includes a Bokeh Control Ring that lets you adjust the sharpness or softness of the bokeh swirl. Just like the Petzval 85, it features Waterhouse Aperture Plates for a classic photographic experience.

A Delicate Balance of Softness and Sharpness

The Daguerreotype Achromat and Petzval Art Lenses are the best choices for artistic photographs. Used with adaptors, they work with a variety of analogue and digital SLR cameras. Make your photos even more magical and use these timeless lenses with Special Aperture Plates to change the bokeh shapes.
