3 Takumars in Nepal
Posted By: kuuan, 05-10-2009, 01:33 PM

When traveling, and I travel a lot, most of my luggage consists of old manual, mostly Takumar lenses which I use on a Pentax *istDs.
In Nepal I mostly just used 3 of them, S-M-C Takumar 28mm f3.5, S-M-C Takumar 50mm f1.4 and a preset Takumar 105mm f2.8

Most photos feature Sadhus, Babas and other pilgrims to the Maha Shivaratri festival at the Pashupathinath temple in Kathmandu, also some kids and random shots around Nepal

The 10 pics shown here are all taken with the S-M-C Takumar 50mm f1.4, in the answer to this post I will post some more taken with the S-M-C Takumar 28mm f3.5 and Takumar 105mm f2.8. That already quite a few, if there is interest I could even show more
( if you have seen most of them in another forum posted a short while ago, well, I like to show these photos )





















best greetings,
kuuan - Andreas

As colourful (the other meaning than 'high saturation') as the people depicted. Very nice shots.

S-M-C Takumar 28mm f3.5 and preset Takumar 105mm f2.8

all photos in the original post had been taken with a S-M-C Takumar 50/1.4, here some with a 28/3.5 and 105/2.8:















( only the last is taken with 105/2.8, the other with the 28/3.5, but my computer here keeps on crashing and connection is slow, may post more later )

best greetings,

The second picture of your second post, while being a good photo on it's own, does break the mood of your series a little. It is very wild compared to the other restive shots. But again, great photo's.

(Also, you posted one picture twice).

Great pictures Kuuan.

Some of your subjects are composed in the centre of the image and need a crop. You have some great subject matter to crop around though.

that shows a 'Kali impersonator'
sorry that the order may be bad, but as mentioned I am not on a good Pc nor connection here, I am just happy if I get them online at all.
thank's abt. the double post, I actually knew right away that I had posted one photo taken with the 28/3.5 erroneously in the first post, wanted to correct it right away, but had another computer crash while doing it ( really !! ) so it took a short while
I have many more photos, mostly taken with the 50/1,4, they can be seen at my flickr account in the Nepal set, there are also sets according to lens used.

thank you JMR


paulyrichard thank you for your suggestion.
once I had given out some prints for free many asked my to take their portrait, I had tried to do the crops accordingly, but I will try to improve.

I would say rather that some of his subjects are composed. And... centered.

Great series - makes me want to travel there.
