Jose Luis Valdivia has rich experience in running creative workshops for photography and film enthusiasts. The combination of knowledge, passion and teaching methodology makes his classes unique. He always illustrates the theoretical input with life examples supported by relevant photos and films he shot. During Samyang Roadshow Europe, Jose Luis Valdivia will raise some photography issues “Photography by Samyang” and will talk about film “Filming with Samyang.”

The workshops will be also attended by Samyang specialists – Piotr Madura and Piotr Kutypa. You might want to ask them about technical issues connected with manual Samyang lenses and learn more about the “Samyang Talent Support” – the program aimed at young photographers and filmmakers.

This video presents SAMYANG 50mm with Blackmagic Cinema Camera – Krakow.

Samyang 50 mm T1.5 AS UMC has been designed for cameras and camcorders fitted with photosensitive 24x36mm or smaller sensor. It gives 46.2 degrees field of view, and thanks to high brightness value of T1.5 (f/1.4) it comes as a great tool in poor lighting conditions, ensuring splendid image quality and small depth of field.

Samyang 50mm T1.5 VDSLR ensures exceptionally smooth and aesthetic mapping for out of focus areas beyond the focal plain, producing the so called bokeh effect. Thanks to the eight-bladed aperture, the subjects located outside the depth of field are shown with extremely smooth features. This feature will be appreciated by professional filmmakers and photographers taking portrait photos.
