Experimenting With The Lensbaby

There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.”
~ Ronald Reagan

I woke up this morning to a beautiful foggy morning with glorious dew drops on the irises blooming in my garden.  Fellow f4 studio photographer Renee Lowery had loaned me her Lensbaby artistic lens and I had yet to give it a try.  This morning seemed like a perfect morning to take it out for a ‘test drive.’

Being perfectly honest, I wasn’t quite sure I was using the lens correctly and I wasn’t quite sure if I would have pleasing results.  After a few minutes of trial and error, I found myself ‘in the zone.’  Following processing several of the images, I knew I was ‘in love.’

One of the reasons I enjoy being a member of f4 studio is that personal growth is continually encouraged within the group.  We imagine.  We wonder.  We encourage and support.

This morning I experienced growth by wondering what images could result from trying a new lens.

How about you.  How do you grow in your photography?

      Hi Sue, thanks for your visit to my blog and post on some recent Lensbaby pictures. In all my playing around with mine I don’t know if there is a ‘correct’ way of using the lens … whatever works for the picture as it unfolds seems to be the correct way for me 😉
