Manchester Old School New School

26th April 2017
During the Easter break I took the opportunity to do a little street photography in Manchester. I decided to take the Sony A7 and the Asahi 35mm 3.5 M42 mount lens from 1971 with me. This lens is manual focus only, but has been kept in perfect condition, which is reflected in the photographs taken. (I wouldn't recommend emulating a couple of these shots, as I was on a tram track in one and in the middle of the road on another - you have to be quick!)

For the photographers out there - notice the lack of chromatic aberrations in the shots, especially the last one. Although these have been processed in Lr with some colour work in Color Efex Pro 4, I haven't done any extra work to remove lens issues, other than a little distortion and vignette removal, as you do with all lenses.

To see some more photos taken on this trip, pop along to my Personal Work page on the menu, they're currently on page 2.
