Only Cafe Portrait Series #5: Jamie Marcellus

Only Cafe Portrait Series #5. I had a great time this morning meeting up with my good friend (and extremely talented photographer) Jamie Marcellus.

As always for this project, shooting with my Sony A7ii and my old Helios 44 lens (58mm/f2).

If you are in the Toronto area and can get to the Donlands/Danforth area and would like to be part of this project, please let me know!

Outing With a friend (The Only Cafe Portrait Series)

I was out with a photography friend yesterday, and I took this portrait of him at the Only Cafe. The technology was old and new; the camera was my Sony A7ii, but the lens was my old Soviet era Helios 44/2 lens, mounted via adapter. The light was from an overcast day, coming in through a window. I love what this lens can do!

Portrait of a Friend

I was happy to get together with my good friend Ken last Saturday. We met up at The Only Cafe of course. Fairly dimly lit, so I ratcheted up the ISO on the Sony A7ii to 6400. Impressed with the lack of noise! The lens was an old Nikkor 50mm f1.4, mounted via adapter and shot wide open. Quite happy with this image!
