Lens:
Submitted: Friday, 20th December, 2013 22:55 (GMT)
Taken: Friday, 14th September, 2012
Focal length: 25 mm
Shutter speed: 1/60 sec
Aperture: F8
ISO: 200
Notes: Taken with a plastic Holga lens on an NEX camera. The lens creates some edge blur and corner vignetting, along with some reduction in contrast. I like that it creates a somewhat dreamy, other worldly effect, adds an element of unpredictability to the image-making process, and places the subject in a different, somewhat timeless space. Sometimes, "sharpness" is overrated.
