Daily Inspiration #1030
By Lee Webb
Love the website. Thanks for keeping it running all these years.
My name’s Lee and I like to shoot street photography with vintage lenses. Living in Shanghai gives me plenty of scenes to work with and I try to get out whenever time allows and the light is good. These three shots were taken with a Yashica Yashinon 45mm f1.7 on a Sony NEX. The lens is from the old Yashica Electro 35 film camera. Unlike most vintage lenses I’ve owned it was never meant to be removed from the camera. This means that instead of using a separate adapter, the back of the lens itself is modified to fit your digital camera body.
Hopefully someone can get some inspiration from these images, this being a daily inspiration post and all. :)
I blog myself. Mainly about street photography and philosophies behind creative pursuits. I also review all the vintage lenses I use. If anyone wants to learn more about the 45mm Yashinon used for these shots, they can here: www.myfavouritelens.com/yashica-yashinon-dx-45mm-f1-7-lens-review/ And to see more street shots taken with all different vintage lenses, my Instagram is here: www.instagram.com/myfavouritelee/
Keep up the great work, Steve and Brandon.
