The film camera and night city are good compatibility Flektogon 20mm in Night of Shinjuku, Shimokitazawa

Flektogon 20mm Walk in the night of Shinjuku

The film has good texture of noise and highlights. I think that compatibility with dark places is good. I tried that.

Of course it was dark, so careful attention to hand shake was necessary.
However, it is my first impression that I can take ordinary shooting without hesitation.

I am glad that the texture like a photo collection I saw earlier than anything else.
I wanted to try it in series.

Today’s agenda

· Walk in the night of Shinjuku
· Walk in the night of Shimokitazawa
· Story of lens (Flektogon 20mm)

Walk in the night of Shinjuku

Flektogon 20mm Walk in the night of Shinjuku
Mostly it is a long shutter speed 1/4 to 1/30.
It seems that it will not shake if it is set exactly.

There is no problem if it seems normal brightness.

I used the light of my iPhone to the flowers.
It seems that it did not mean much.
I guess I wanted to work hard.

DoCoMo Tower.
I am trembling handshake a little in a dark place.
I also think that it feels good to have a taste like a blurred feeling.

It is a composition that seems to be interesting if you set the model in front and shoot it with unexpected blur.
The dream spreads pretty well.

The atmosphere of the city different from daytime is fresh.
Well compatible with wide angle 20mm.

People who are walking slow shutter speed will be blurred.
It is a little lucky that you do not have to worry too much about reflections.

The car was running in the foreground, but it seems that only light is left.
I never really thought of such a slow shutter, but I felt it was interesting.

Walk in the night of Shimokitazawa

To Shimokitazawa another day

It is good atmosphere and feeling like downtown.
It seems that it was good even if it was dark about one more step to look at it again.
I feel that the back of the half shutter will be emphasized more.

This may be exact exposure, but there are few elements and it’s too simple.

The following was a bit difficult to understand, so I tried the first correction on film.

After correction of contrast

I raised the exposure with Abode Bridge, and I’m tightening the shadows and black a little.
I was wondering if it would be more sticky, but unexpectedly the tonal information remained and the correction worked.

Coin laundry, although there is a feeling, there is atmosphere that I can not stay without taking pictures.
It is likely to taste better when people are shown.
I want to do a lot of portrait.

Oh, it looks like a movie.
Indeed this texture was the color of the streetlight’s light.
It is interesting that direct coloring of lighting comes out on film.

I wanted to capture the feeling of lanterns being swayed, but this should have moved in line with the lantern and had to hang behind.

What I thought this time

· The low shutter speed is also interesting to positively use blur to express
· Film tends to taste easily even by slight correction
· The color of the light comes directly out on the film

About Flektogon 20mm F4.0

Carl Zeiss Jena / Flektogon 20mm/F4.0 M42 Zebra about 1973

Appearance with plenty of mania feeling with big lens.
Even if you lean up to 16 cm, you can release painting F4.0 so painting that emphasizes blur like Flektogon 35 mm is difficult.
Although it is a lens that has a considerably good taste as a wide angle of an old lens.
It is a lens you want to try by all means, Lens Buying Addiction.


Looking at eBay.
Unexpectedly it is on the market as it is and the rotation seems to be good, so when you purchase you should look carefully and look for something that is not impatient.
