I recently purchased a new lens for my camera. It is called a “Lensbaby Composer”. Why I needed a new way of looking at my already distorted world I do not know but I find I am a bit of a gadget geek. Love new and shiny things….all within reason of course. The Lensbaby Composer is a prime SLR lens that you use to get creative shots with. It is totally manual and can be complicated to learn. I bought the extra attachments to make the lens useful for macro and wide angle shots. It has been a huge learning curve for me but I am enjoying the process. I have had experienced help getting started as the kit comes with a series of discs that are your fstops. Every disc has a different size hole in it and makes the outcome of the photograph different. Anyway here are a few of my first efforts on plants in the Sandbox.
I will be joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. Hope to see you there. Valerie
ps. I have decided for the month of August I would join Susannah Conway's August Break 2011. I will be putting up. I hope a daily picture. but no words. I will be joining my usual memes but adding no explanations for the photos. It is just a way for me to get better at taking photos but not having the addition of blogging about it. We will see how it goes. If you would like to join in please do. Last year had over 500 bloggers entered in the blog roll. August Break 2011
