Through her, I knew the Lens-Baby lenses, which interested me a lot, I thought they could help me regain the desire to catch the camera.
So with the Christmas excuse, I thought it was a good time to give me a new lens.
After analyzing the different types that there are and consulting with a friend who uses them, I decided on the Composer Pro II with Sweet 35.
It came to me at the end of the year and on New Year’s Day, I went for a walk with it around my home.
I think it’s a kind of lens to practice slow photography, I like it! It’s manual focus, something that doesn’t scare me, since I use it very often. The blurring effect can be very drastic using large apertures (2.5) or softer closing the diaphragm (22).
What I found more difficult is to get the focus point right, for this it is necessary to adjust the rotation movement of the lens well. I suppose it will require more practice.
My first tests with the Sweet 35 have been satisfactory, although I have to practice more. I really like the effect it creates and I’m looking forward to testing it elsewhere and also with close-up photography.
So, it looks like it got me out of my photographic apathy… 👍
