I've been trying an assortment of old manual focus lenses on my Panasonic GX1 micro 4/3 camera. This was taken with an old Prinzflex 28mm f2.8 lens with the aperture wide open.
With the crop factor of the Micro 4/3 taken into account, this works out the equivalent of a 56mm lens.

Love using old lenses on digital cameras. Beautiful detail and bokeh.

Very nice silhouetting here, super composition and the dof is just shallow enough to make the background elements artistic and beautiful. Fascinating to see how you made this image. You have it all worked out in your head for the numbers too. very cool! Funny how we become proficient with our gear and can make these calculations on the fly as time goes on. My calculations are much more about experience and understanding size vs. distance to know what set of apertures I should use for a subject...the fact that I've taken enough pictures to have any idea at all is kind of amazing to me! :)

I knew that if I shot through the 'thick' of the branches/leaves I would get numerous effects with the out of focus blurring... just a matter of trying different distances. The advantage with digital is you can try all these differing setting and techniques. Pre digital, you only had a maximum of 36 shots and then you had to wait for the film to be processed and you had to write all the setting down if your memory wasn't that good ;)
