Celebrating Fall with my Lensbaby
It is time to celebrate the wonderful fall images with our “Circle Blog” Please visit the talented and creative Janet Douglas with her post http://jandouglas.weebly.com/hearts-lensbaby-love-hearts/our-fall-with-lensbaby
As a photographer, I am thankful to catch the small nuances of a season over time. For me, with the fun and joy of using a Lensbaby lens or optic to help capture that magic, changes in color are even better!
My images were captured with my Nikon D800E and I will confess, this is the best “workhorse” of a camera I have ever had. I started bringing it with me wherever I went. Usually, most of my trips were to either physical therapy or a doctor’s appointment. However, bringing my camera and having it “at the ready,” I found many great subjects in parking lots between the car and my appointment. Great practice to look around wherever you are at the moment!
Special thanks and gratitude for joining an incredible group of women photographers on this venture. Ana Maria Rosenberg, Pauline Putt, Nicola Stewart Janet Douglas, and Anja Williams. One of the best aspects of photography and social media has been the community across the globe. May we always be able to connect through our visions and the arts.
While searching for autumn color early in the season, I drove from one parking lot to another and as luck would have it, found an amazing dragon-fly. Previously, I never had more than a quick shot with one. I enjoyed the chameleon aspects and felt part of the magic was due to the Velvet 56 Lens. What a delightful surprise!
My “go-to” optic for these fall images ended up being the Sweet 50 Optic. It is light weight and a perfect match as a walk around lens. This clearly became my “Nifty Fifty!”
Double Exposure (in camera) a fun change.
In northern California, we are due for many more moments celebrating the fall season. We have an amazing snow covering for the Thanksgiving week
