So I was just being a hipster faggot looking through an op-shop this afternoon, when I saw an old M42 lens on the shelf for $5.
I've never bought a properly old lens before, but I always suss them out when I see them. To my surprise, this one looked pretty good. It appears to be fungus free, no scratches at all, and a nice smooth aperture, so I bought it.
Not having a matching camera, or an adapter, I just held it in front of my rabal and fired off a few shots. I was really pleased with how they came out.
I think that with a bit of practice, I could legitimately 'make pictures' with it, as opposed to just playing around.
So who's made anything they like using this technique, and who's got any good advice fo me?

Help me, /p/.
Attached is an image of an artist called Bjork.
The skin tones look green shifted, but not overly- But at the same time, the reds are orange shifted (Or is it orange, red-shifted?) Also the orange-red has that over-saturated detail-less look, but doesn't actually look that saturated. Is this some kind of "saturation limiter?"
1) Is there a film (Like Astia) that doesn't handle high saturation well and blows out the colors?
2) Is there a digital tool more powerful than Lightroom (or a method in photoshop) of limiting the saturation to get the detail loss in the bright colors?

fucking portfolios man, how do they work?
are your thoughts on online portfolios /p/brains? how many images, are you going for depth within one subject or style, or are you covering many different aspects of your photography?
right now my personal site is a bit of a photo diary style. split up in series and a more chronological display (devided by year).
although i love the way it feels to browse through these photodiaries, it's an ineffective way to display your 'best' shots. so i've decide to atleast include a new portfolio section on the site.
so yeah, back to the original question. fucking portfolios man, how do they work?

Everyone tries to make their photos look so crystal clear.
I like taking pictures that are blurry, but naturally so, not edited in photoshop.
Do you have any tips on how to get the camera to take photos that are slightly blurry, but still discernible?

Alright, I've come here before with cinematography questions, and no this is not a gear thread, more like a settings thread I guess, but I could use your help again, and the last time I came here with movie making questions most of you were very accommodating and very helpful. If you saw the last thread months ago you may remember me, but otherwise that's irrelevant. I'm a newbie indie film maker, and being a sucker for zombies, I of course wanted to start with that. I know it's cliche, but it's something I know well, and I feel like it's the best way to get my feet wet so to speak. It's simple, fast paced, and easy to write. I just feel like it's a good place to start. I'm shooting with a canon T3i and I'll be using magic lantern. I went out and did a few field tests today on some of the first person perspective running scenes and everything looked great on the camera, but when I got it on the computer it was kind of choppy and really noisy. The ISO was set on auto so I know why it was noisy, but is there any reason it would be choppy like it was? I was NOT using ML for the field tests. Also, I'd really like some setting suggestions for magic lantern that would improve the overall look of my movie if anybody would like to help with that too, but that's just sort of a side note if anything. Some of the scenes in this movie are going to be fast paced, and some of them are going to be filmed inside a small abandoned farm house with bad lighting, but not totally dark. I have no lighting equipment, but I plan on shooting during the daylight anyway so that shouldn't be too much of an issue. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
