One of my favorite lenses from 1959 (Jupiter 9 85mm f/2) now needs a some serious cleaning and aperture ring alignment. It definitely ruined my day and I blame my camera bag made (manufactured this year) for it. 🙂
Took this exact shot in the past using my mobile phone. I didn’t have my camera yet during that time and I was quite happy with what my phone camera can do. My interests on photography grew stronger so I decided to invest into better equipment after a couple of months. Now that I am on my 2nd camera, I wanted to play around and see how much difference there really is with better equipment by shooting a subject I have shot in the past. So here it is.. I am very pleased with the results, and I definitely appreciate my current camera more than ever. It just captures way more details and much needed information about lighting, shadows, colors etc. It makes post processing much easier too.
