Workshops Using Legacy Lenses on Mirrorless Cameras

LEGACY LENS WORKSHOPS – LONDON

Using Legacy Lenses with Your Mirrorless Camera – ALL LENSES AND GOBE ADAPTERS SUPPLIED

ONE OF THE MOST UNUSUAL WORKSHOPS YOU WILL DO – ABOVE ALL, WITH LOTS OF FUN WITH THESE AMAZING LENSES.

Legacy Lenses

You will have a choice of all these lenses to swap around on the day.
The range will help you understand technique as well as show you how little you need to spend and get started with fast prime legacy lenses. I have included three different Helios lenses as they will be popular. Also two beautiful legacy Olympus Zuiko’s that are extremely high quality. A really quirky Industar that will turn heads. A fab Pentacon that was very popular back in the 70’s/80’s. A couple of  cheap M42’s that are appalling (lol) but can create some weird and wonderful effects (working with their flaws), as well as perform to high standards if handled well. Challenging but real fun that can surprise you.

Adapters I use are from Gobe. You will have the opportunity to use these all day for your type of camera. These are high quality adapters that are supplied with a lifetime warranty. More on Gobe by clicking their logo below.

The day starts with a complimentary coffee near Brick Lane where Tony takes you through the lenses and briefs the group on usage as well as tips on buying legacy lenses. Then we work in sections of Brick Lane, including the inner covered areas to utilise shooting wide open in low light and providing high Bokeh opportunities. Throughout the day Tony will be supporting you with help and encouragement.
