Jupiter-9 in action
This shot was taken with the Pentax Spotmatic F with Fujifilm Reala film (ASA 100). Lighting was not perfect for the day, but I manage to find the right angle of the sunlight illuminating the left face of my daugther, creating almost a 1:3 lighting ratio.
The background was messy, but at f4.0, this lens is still more than capable of producing excellent bokeh to blur out the background very well, giving this photo the 3D look.
Another comment is the choice of Fujifilm Reala, which produces very nice colours. The skintone is almost spot on, not overly warm, which is just nice to give it a very neutral feel. Rated at ASA 100, grains are hardly noticeable.
Focusing with the Jupiter-9 can be quite a hassle especially with moving subjects, as I need to stop down the aperture (by turning the aperture ring to the right) to get the correct exposure. The metering on the Pentax is accurate, and very reliable at most time, even tricky conditions. And mind you, it's a 30-year old technology! Nevertheless, Pentax is the inventor of TTL-metering.
