The insanely talented Jason Bognacki of Today's Tomorrow brings to attention his experiments with bokeh using an Helios 58mm f/2 with modified elements. The insanely bright results with intensely unusual spirals of bokeh around the edges are nothing short of spectacular. Check out his full gallery on Flickr.
Ive been trying for a while to come up with a way to emulate extreme PETZVAL like bokeh on a EOS camera. The HELIOS 44 comes close. But I was looking for something more Petzval and less lensbaby. This is where I am at... somewhere in between. Very soft focus at the edges... Wild bokeh effects and swirls. Loads of lens flare, and something a bit like ghosting but its not... A wild beast. Be sure to watch the video. Trippy.
We previously featured Jason on our site when he mashed a Canon 5D with a 93-year-old folding camera.
