Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 – a stunning piece of glass that renders well on film and digital

I’ll let these pictures speak for themselves. All have had minor tweaks in Lightroom.

First the digital files with a Nikon D3 – click for bigger

And now some files on Fujifilm Superior Xtra 400 – click for bigger

Canon A1 + 50mm f1.4 Acros 100 pushed to 400

Some more shots from my film experiment. Pushing this film to 400 was a test, something I’m not going to rush to again because you lose contrast which has to be added again in Lightroom, not as effective though. 

I’m enjoying the experience. Digital is so ubiquitous and once you’ve mastered a few techniques you end up using your camera as a crutch for poor composition and thought.
