Lots of folk use the Helios 44 lens for close shots – the blur of the bokeh is pretty much a thing. Hey, I like it too, but I thought it would be fun to see just what this whole depth of field thing was about. Could that shallowness be stretched a bit while still retaining the blur that makes the Helios a Helios?
Yeah, seems so.
