I finally had a chance to take my newest acquisition — a Helios 40-2 85mm/1.5 Lens — out for a shoot. Nothing fancy just stuff in the backyard. This lens for those who don’t know has a specific optical aberration that allows it to produce the so-called “swirly bokeh” effect. Check the out of focus shot of leaves below to get an idea of what it looks like. The complete set as usual is on flickr.
