Hello, brilliant backers!

In sharpness or in softness, the Petzval 85 Art Lens just delivers. Hong Kong-based photographer Tung Tung Tung gave us a masterclass on portrait photography. Shooting with the aperture wide-open, she gave us images that are draped in beautiful swirly bokeh that accentuated the subject even more. Tung Tung Tung also showed us how the Petzval 85, a lens born out of love for an old-world aesthetic, could be used to take portraits with impeccable sharpness.
