I have been having a hard time getting to know my Lensbaby Composer Pro Lens. I have tried and tried, but my images don’t resemble the wonderful photographs I have seen created by other people with a Lensbaby lens. I was ready to give up completely.
But… I decided to try again, this time with the wide angle attachment. I didn’t bring any other lenses, just the Lensbaby and me.
I have a hard time with the manual focus. Sometimes it seems there is nothing in focus, but other times it is crystal clear. I cropped in on both bee images, although cropping cuts out the ‘Lensbaby effect’ it did make for a better composition and I love seeing the details of the bees. (I sure have photographed a lot of bees lately.)
I am glad I tried again and will continue trying. I will master the Lensbaby someday…
Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds, my images were textured with Kim’s texture quiet. I have three finds this week: late summer blooms, practice is just that, practice, it doesn’t have to be perfect, and I can’t learn if I don’t even try.
Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!!
