Stopping by this morning to say HI and to send some KUDOS to those of you living in regions that have long winters with lots of snow. Don't know how you do it.This past week, here in the part of Texas that I live in, has had some winter weather, including a day of THUNDER SLEET, what ever that is, snow rain, warm weather, and now a couple of inches of snow to be followed by freezing rain. Frankly, after a week of this, I am totally ready for SPRING. A little bit spoiled after 40 plus years of Texas winters. Anyway, I think that all of you who have long winters are just amazing not to just go crazy. I decided this morning to take out my lensbaby that I got for my birthday last year, and try it out again. Really a fun lens, but not one I have used very much. Anyway, treated my self to a very small bouquet of flowers, and decided that would be my subject. The purpose of the LENSBABY is to be able to find a "sweet spot" or area of focus, and to have that spot surrounded with a mysterious blur, so the sweet spot really stands out. This is something that has to be manually focused, and think on very small areas, I may need some new and improved glasses.... but did my best.
|Since I added the macro lens cover to the lens that I used, I also used this small sand filled tripod, which I have found great for macro work. Very easily adjusted to get perfect for t he subject area, no matter how small it is.|
|You can see on this shot that only the edges of the rose represent the sweet spot, and the rest is blurred.|
