A New Addition to the Lens Stable

So much for updating this place in a week! It turned into a whole month! Sorry about that!

Anyway, I have recently acquired a Lensbaby and have been practicing with it the last couple of weeks. For those of you who have no idea what a Lensbaby is, I will explain how it works. It is a sort of an inexpensive Tilt Shift lens that allows you to bend the lens to various focal points. (Some parts will be in focus and the surroundings will be soft and blurry.) You have to manually focus it, which takes some practice. You can see stars in the background in some of the photos, because of the accessories that come with the lens. You place a disc with a shape on it, in front of the lens and it makes the bokeh turn to that shape. It is a fun lens that adds another creative element to your photography. I can also do macro photography with the lens as well.
