Love and Skylines (Freelensing tutorial)

Love and Skylines

I’m excited to have a tutorial on freelensing coming up on B&H’s Web site — here it is!

Camera: Nikon D3s
Lens: Nikon 50mm f/1.2 (freelensed)

cole - Damn that’s fantastic. Great stuff as always Ryan!

George L Koroneos - You never mention if you can use a G series Nikon lens to freelens? And if so, how? I’d love to try this out, but only have the latest Nikon lenses.

Ryan Brenizer - It’s very difficult, because you need to physically keep the aperture ring open or it will stop down all the way. And if you aren’t a lens hacker, I don’t want to be the one responsible for you breaking your lenses. ;-)

Steve Elmer - It is a great little side way to photograph, no need to worry about dust or lens issues. just have fun! Thanks for the post Ryan, it is thorough like always :)

ed peers - Thanks for sharing Ryan… your creativity is inspiring.

Ashley Gillett - Ryan, this is so pretty I love how free lensing really enhances such a pretty thing, like the bokeh. I only have a 50 1.4G, so I’ll have to wait to try this. Unless I can do the with a zoom? I’ll have to go back and reread your article.

Sarah McGee - Lovely! Reminds me that I need to give freelensing a few more tries.

Dušan Smolnikar - I love your freelensing work.
I’ve been trying to do this for a while, but never knew where to start
This tutorial finally got me trying, and I’m really happy with the results. Thanks!

Dmitriy Frolov - It`s first time I see such a photos without using Tilt-Shift. Firstly I didn`t understand anything, because there were a info about 50mm f/1.2, so I started to google what does “freelenses” mean.
After all, now I know)
Good job, Ryen!
