So, I finally got a Lens Baby for my 20D and I have to say, I’m addicted to it! There’s something very organic, and challenging, about the experience that really calls to me. My first event to shoot with the Lens Baby was my sister’s wedding over the weekend. I shared the camera with my 11 year-old son, Steven…who actually shot better images with it than I did (just in case you are concerned that it’s too complicated). The images here were shot by Steven.
The first is my father. What’s interesting is that the plane of focus is so skewed. The camera and the subject is in focus while things next to the subject are not. That kind of control is fascinating, for me.
The second is my Son, Malakhi. I love the depth of field on this shot. It’s like a fast lens but with something more organic mixed in. After my first weekend with the lens, I’m not sure what took me so long!
