8x10 PETZVAL finally getting some use…

Ghost tracks….on flickr:http://www.flickr.com/photos/bognacki/11849890333/in/photostream/
I had to look at this shot twice after I took it. These two ghosts came out of nowhere to pose for this portrait. Those woods are haunted and now I have proof!

40mm f0.33 - The lens was given the name “Super-Q-Gigantar.” The “Q” stands for “Quatsch,” which translates to “nonsense” in German.

Petzval Gate // 001Back in Feb I began experimenting trying to create a PETZVAL-like image on DSLR. My HELIOS-PETZVAL MOD comes very close to this look. http://todaystomorrow.tumblr.com/post/49119801943/experiments-in-bokeh-04-27-13-helios-44-58mmI was contacted in the past by a small manufacturer interested in licensing my design, but no deals were reached. Now seems another more well established company Lomography has taken the idea and launched a Kickstarter. At last check they have raised over a quarter million dollars. Seems on the surface that they are using the same Zenit lens optics and wrapping it in a vintage brass shell. Well played. Ugggggh.
