Lensbaby fun!

Posted by
Ansie (Paarl, South Africa) on 22 May 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I have not played much with the lensbaby. I struggle to get the hang of it, and of course one must keep struggling - any help out there? This one was not too bad.

A gorgeous image. Such soft tones and beautiful dof. I just love it with those little tiny pistils.

Not bad? Heck, it's gorgeous! A few more like this and I'll have to pull mine out too. Well done, inspiring shot.

Ah... you've got a Lensbaby... no, I'm afraid I can't help, because I haven't got one, but it's on my wishlist, too... ;)
I just wanted recommend you Barbara here in Am3, but I saw you have already contacted her... that's fine...

Nevertheless - I love your picture, Ansie, it's a great shot with the dreamy softness of a real lensbaby shot!

Have a nice weekend... :)

I've been thinking of investing in a lensbaby, so good to see it in practice. This is beautiful soft yet still elegant in lovely soft tones. Lovely photo

I've long been a fan of the lensbaby's and this reinforces that love. A beautiful shot with such delicate detail and tone. Not another thing I will have to save up for! ... ha ha

Mandy from Worcester, South Africa

wow dit lyk awesome het jy dit so geneem of gefoto-edit? ma dit lyk pragtig. is jy deel van die paarl se foto club?

23 May 2010 6:22pm

@Mandy: Nee, net so geneem met 'n lensbaby, maar jy kan dit ook doen met 'n macro lens. Nee, ek is nie lid nie, was gewees met Somerset Wes, maar dit gelos, moet seker hier inskakel. Ek ken nie jou Kodak nie, is dit 'n slr? Daar is ongelooflike goeie klasse in Stellenbosch deur Nicole Palmer.
