We were late this morning, having sat and watched the rugby. It was dull at first but the sun did come out as we wandered round.
I wanted to play with my plastic optic as I haven’t used the older lensbabies for a long time. I was quickly frustrated as I couldn’t focus close enough to the subjects I wanted to take and I hadn’t brought my macro kit. It was then a switch to my Velvet 56.
Last week I took a few shots with my Lensbaby Sweet 35. I’d put on on my camera to take a shot for my Project 52 and that’s what was still on my camera when we went out. With such a great range of creative lenses I hadn’t used this one for a while. It was one of the first Lensbabies I bought and I love the bokeh and blur it creates. So today I wanted to have a play.
It was a beautiful sunny summer morning on the common. We weren’t out early but as the sun is rising later I still got some great light. When I’m out with the dogs its not possible to take as much time as I sometimes want or need to frame my shots. Not having used this lens for a while I was out of practice so I played with taking some out of focus shots. I like the effect, particularly in the woods where the bokeh was strong.
What do you think?
