Ok, so while my business is mostly about photographing people, this was a love and hobby long before I was doing it as a business. Spring time is such a great to be outside and see the results of our patience over the winter as flowers have been getting ready to welcome us! My wife Janie and I headed out to take a walk in our South Berkeley neighborhood armed with our camera. I took only my new LensBaby 2.0 lens with it’s Macro Kit.
For those who aren’t familiar with the LensBaby it’s a special bellows-like lens that fits where a normal lens would but is absurdly low tech. You push/pull it to focus and tilt it for different effects and to move the spot where the sharpest focus is located. It really gives a creative new way to see the world. It would be amazing for wedding details, ring photos, and some of the dancing. It’s definitely an art and not a science! Here’s my first effort around our neighborhood.
