Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Leica Noctilux 50mm f/1 – Bangkok market, lights and bokeh

with 4 comments

I’ve been experimenting with the Noctilux since I purchased it almost two weeks ago.  Today I was at a market near Jatujak and figured that I would spend an hour photographing light fixtures with the Nocti wide open, that is, at f/1.  The bokeh is quite nice with this lens and one has an urge to capture an image more with the bokeh in mind rather than the subject in the frame.   And in the end, of course, the bokeh became the subject and the light source a secondary object.

    • Exactly. Amazing really that you identified the market in the bokeh of the photos. Leo

  3. I am about to suffer a severe attack of lens-envy. These shots are wonderful. Beautiful bokeh. Congratulations.
