Tracy in the Car (3 of 3)

Newer Older

This is my friend Tracy posing for me in my friend Kevin's car. That's the light from the sunset coming in the windshield. She's got great eyes. I shot these with one of my favourite old lenses, the Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 Lens, which was manufactured by the Asahi Optics Company of Japan in the 1960's. It's punchy, gritty and has it's own unique flavour of distortion, which I love.

    Utterly captivating. I can't help wondering how this shot would have looked in colour.

    Thank you Andrew! The color version of this is not as striking, but if I find it I'll post it here as well.
