Lens Chimping

I have finally acquired the best photographic tool, and it only took 2 and a 1/2 weeks via ebay (costing me a whopping $3 delivered).

To those that do not know about this technique, check out http://www.samhurdphotography.com/2014/technique/photography-techniques-lens-chimping.

Big props to photographers like Sam Hurd and Ryan Brenizer that share their knowledge and techniques to the world for free.

First few practice frames utilising the technique aforementioned above, shot with my X-pro1 with the 35mm f1.4 lens mounted.

  1. Can I know what lens he are using for this lens chimping technique? I try to use 50 & 85 but all become like macro lens, the distance need very close up the subject just can get the focus point. Appreciate your advise.

    1. Hi Simon,
      Thanks for visiting the technique involved is pre-focusing without the glass/prism in the way. Once you have locked focus. Place the glass in front of the lens and play around with different angles but do not completely block ur lens. This should give you different effects that you want to achieve.
      Happy shooting!
