A manual focus lens without electonics, I think?

I'd suggest brightening the eyes a bit, either by lifting midtones in Levels, or by dodging. I'll try a mod...

I think you've used a very wide aperture, which can be a reason to use an older, fixed focal length lens. However, the focus seems to be slighly closer than the eyes, which are the heart of a portrait. Precise focussing at wide apertures needs a lot of practice, and you should always take several shots, most of which won't be quite right.

A final thought - although the wide aperture has thrown the background well out of focus, it's not removed the detail. Light and dark bars tend to be messy and distracting - if you can find a plain, dark background, do so.

Its a nice idea.


One eye is reasonably sharp, - as mentioned, difficult to get sharp results with such a wide aperture, and both benefit with a little more sharpening.


I agree, eyes need to be brighter, and Ive also cropped in the mod.

Thank you very much I really like the mod, Dodge on Photoshop to bright only the eyes right ?, And level is such that curve thing on Photoshop ?, Ok I really like the idea about the plain background and yes it is manual lense without electronic on D5200 can only use the wide opening, I noticed that even when I rotate the aperture ring it not changing, seem locked at wide open and also light meter didn't work, so yes I took several shot to get correct light and also focus as you mentioned, on D7100, all function working perfectly, I mean aperture ring and metering so only focusing to framing and focus, once again, but yes I love that wide open lense deliver awesome blurry not focusing area

hmmm so difficult, I like the both mod one more contrast version and more pop also more sharp and other make it soft and creamy, so delicate, it's really make me confused, well done for mode, but I can't decide which I like most cause they are good also about the crop thing, I really love this community it give more encourage for me, thank you very much 🙏🙏🙏

Compatibility varies across the Nikon range.

There will probably be some way to lock the aperture actuator on the lens - on the cameras it was designed for, the part of the camera that holds the aperture open moves and lets a lever on the back of the lens. You could remove that lever in the lens, but that would be irreversible, and a terrible thing to do to a classic lens.

Alternatively, if you don't turn the lens fully when you put it on the camera, the aperture will stay closed down to the aperture set.

Or stick to the 7100...
