Using the new Sirui 50mm f1.8 1.33x Anamorphic lens, I challenged myself to photograph and film two models in one of Sydney's beautiful rainforests.

As the lens was mounted on my Olympus O-MD E-M1X, the crop factor was actually 75mm equiv when taking into account the 1.33x anamorphic squeeze.

All images were first de-squeezed in Adobe Photoshop, then colour graded using my Portrait Presets Vol.1 in Adobe Lightroom.

Big thanks to James Elliott and Mike Selva for their help.
