Twisted, I swore I would shoot no wedding, and if this was a normal wedding he could not have twisted hard enough. OTOH I owe my current job to him so.......

Great candid! The PP and the flare give a kind of retro look which I like very much.

This is with the 28mm f/3.5 Super Tak, on a gorillapod, with 2 stacked polarizers so I could get a 3 second exposure. Of course the rig also hit the ground, lens down, and got a small dent in the filter ring, but that's part of life, as I got to find out.

Thank you very much, I took it during a photo contest, the theme was "Retro" so all pictures had to be sepia. Turns out that it looks best that way anyway.

This of course is just a cheap imitation of Twitch's work, but I like his style and I would definitely like to shoot some photos comparable to his. (not these, of course!)




I'm still trying to figure how can I get mid-day long exposures with sky in the frame without breaking the bank.

if you are going to shoot them in b/w (or for b/w only) get an inexpensive cokin/lee type filter holder that will take welders mask glass inserts. they are cheap plentiful and about 10-13 stops

like these ones

I remembered about some older photos while writing the review for the 50/1.4 Tak. The first one is from April, and the second one is from last summer (took by my GF, it's me on the right, with two of our friends). My aunt turned 93 this year.
