Canon 5D Mark III | 50mm | F2.0 | 1/640 | ISO160
This image (just like the last) was also shot with the Nikkor-S 50mm 1.4. Another reason I shoot with this lens, despite it being ultra sharp at F2 and up. Is the ability to get shorter focussing distances when using the ‘Lens Whacking’ technique demonstrated and mastered by James Miller of Millerandmiller.co.uk.
This technique involves ‘free lensing’ the 50mm in front of your camera, holding it at different angles and distances to allow light o leak around the barrel of the lens, creating these weird, wonderful and often funky streaks and effects over your footage. Though it is alms impossible to gauge how difficult it is to do correctly, so I advise you try it out yourself, and ask the master himself if you have any problems.
