Embracing the Bokeh

So as I said in my previous post, I was going to start playing with my lensbaby and adapters on the Z6. Well I have been. At present, my sweet 35 optic eludes me, so I’ve been using my sweet 50. The sweet 50 is a bit broken, in that the f/stops won’t click into place so it’s more of a continuous scale and is a bit loose. That said, it still works! So here are a couple of images, from the past few days. All taken with the Z6, FTZ adapter and Lensbaby Composer.

Back in the saddle again…

So, it’s been a while since I wrote a blog post. I hit a bit of a rut and wasn’t taking many photos. Even now, I’ve not been in my darkroom for ages. But still, I’ve finally started taking more photos and I’ve started another 365 project, which is pushing me a bit. It turns out I was missing the need to take photos every day. It gets the old creative juices flowing!

Captures of the Day (6/5/19)

Today’s captures, again all taken with Lensbaby Composer and Edge 35 Optic, with a 12mm Extension Tube thrown into the mix in places.

Osteospermum. Was really happy with how the details in the centre came out.
I was really attracted to the contrast between red and green.
Dead hydrangea stems. Really liked the distortion I got with this one.
Little yellow flowers.

Captures of the day (27/4/19)

Lilac flowers

So today is very much a flower day. Now that spring has finally sprung, there’s so much around to photograph. Our dog is slowly learning to wait for me when taking photos, though if he sees a leaf on the wind, there’s no guarantee I will get the shot I’m after!

Azalea Flowers

I’m still shooting with the Edge 35 Optic, and I’m still enjoying it.

A rosemary bush

The dappled light was hitting the rosemary just right.

Azalea Flowers

I was trying to choose between this shot of the Azalea and the one above… then I realised, I don’t have to!
