A Day With Takumar 35mm f2.0

70D Takumar 35mm f2

Okay, from the first time I had a camera, I always relied on the magic motor inside the lens or inside the body to do the focusing part. I never have a manual lenses, I only stand 2 days with my father old camera, and I always thought that using manual lenses is slow, not-reliable, and just-not-for-me …

Until yesterday, my brother-in-law lend me his Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR 1:2/35 and SMC TAKUMAR 1:1.4/50 lens.

Today I saw an article on Fstoppers about how to create a Cinematic look on your images. To be simple, an image will be called cinematic-ish if we look the image as if it was taken from a snapshot of a movie (like when you were watching Captain America and .. hey, I like this scene with Scarlett Johansson … then you pause the movie and press the Print Screen button … well that kind of cinematic-ish haha).

Midnight near The Amsterdam Centraal

Amsterdam Centraal

From wikipedia

Amsterdam Centraal (code: Asd) is the central railway station of Amsterdam. It is also one of the main railway hubs of the Netherlands and is used by 250,000 passengers a day, excluding transferring passengers. It is the starting point of Amsterdam Metro lines 51, 53 and 54.

I would never expect that taking short walk and doing some street shot near Amsterdam Centraal would be so fantastic in the midnight. I mean, although the air is so cold (I put all my jacket and gloves, double my pants too haha), but on the same time I experience a very unique scenery I would not have while shooting in the morning. The area were filled with lot of yellow street light and beatiful old-styled buildings, giving me the feeling that they  want to say that they still standing strong even it’s 2013.
