Fort Brockhurst, Lensbaby Composer, Double Glass Optic, f2.8



At last I've got out during the day (well, late afternoon) to shoot with my Canon EOS 350d / Rebel XT and my Lensbaby Composer. This time I popped the f2.8 aperture ring into the Double-Glass Optic, and headed off to Fort Brockhurst.

All the black and white photographs you see here have been processed in Photoshop and converted to black and white with Nik's Silver Efex Pro.

I'm starting to really get to know the Lensbaby Composer now - manual focusing is easier, as is my perception of where the sharp "sweet spot" is in the frame.

The f2.8 Aperture Ring gives a nice strong "Lensbaby" look, while the Double Glass Optic keep things relatively sharp in the middle (or wherever you decide to swivel the middle to!)

The amount, and type of blur is also dependant on your distance to the subject, I tried to find a subject where I could really focus past some foreground interest to see what would happen.

I'm really starting to love the Lensbaby Composer. The possibilities, even when "just" using the Double Glass Optic and different apertures, are astounding.
