Arizona Sunflower and more

I took my D810 mounted with my LensBaby Composer Pro out for a walk looking for flowers in the neighborhood the other day.   I put the Soft Focus Optic in the Composer along with the 16mm macro adapter; here’s a few images from that walk.

Arizona Sunflower at f/2- I love that blur!

a Rose f/4- I wanted to get a bit more in focus so stopped it down a stop.

It looks like my LensBaby will get along fine with the D810.

I’m off for a “ladies  long week-end” with a good friend. We plan to hike in the mountains by a lake, and do a lot of photography. I hope the sky is clear so we can photograph the stars at least one night.

I hope you all have a lovely week-end. I’ll catch up when I return.

More to come…

A new Adventure with a LensBaby Composer Pro

Copyright © Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I recently sold a lens I no longer use because I upgraded it to a better version. I put the money in the bank, then promptly

purchased a LensBaby Composer Pro with Double Glass Optic, and optional macro converter set.

There’s a bit of a learning curve, but I think I’ll get the hang of it with a little more practice.

These images are the first in what I hope will be a long love affair with this little lens.

This is my Hydrangea. I love this plant.  It’s taken a long time to get to this size. We’re having the front yard and driveway redone and I’ve been asked by every contractor if I wanted to remove it and pave over the area. I’ve replied, “No, it stays!” every time they ask.

I took this image with the LensBaby Composer with Double Glass Optic at f4

photograph with the lens. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to play with.

This was a challenging exercise in timing, but fun! I am planning to try this again with two speedlights soon.
