all images were captured on the canon mark iii with a lens adapter so i could use a manual canon 55mm 1.2 lens from my old f-1 camera.
every afternoon, the fall light streams through our patio door and flows into our kitchen. it’s something that i see every day while the girls play. i’ve photographed here many times and i always know exactly how the images will turn out. but this time, i used the old manual lens. i’ve been trying to keep this lens on my camera because i’m loving it’s imperfections. and by breaking away from the norm of what i shoot with and forcing myself to manually focus, i get to see things in a new light. i love how different these photos came out. the imperfections truly make it perfect…
…and here’s the pull back. the dirty screen patio door provided such gorgeous bokeh! plus you can see how my littlest was on the other side of the screen, literally eating the floor mat. her expression of getting caught just gets me giggling!
more imperfect, perfect images all taken within the past week:
i love how in all of these photos, they are all imperfect. and it’s not always about the sharpness or clarity but rather the emotions captured, the feelings that are evoked every time you look at the photo. these images feel more raw to me. and i absolutely love them.
