Some more Tilt photos

I’ve taken a few more Tilt photos using the Lensbaby Tilt Adapter and Nikon 50mm e-series lens. Camera is a Sony NEX C3.
One of them is an edit of a picture from a previous post.

Clicking on a picture takes you to my Flickr.

New Tricks

Recently i’ve tried a new area of selective focus photos, using another lensbaby product to produce a different look to the usual lensbaby photos seen in my first post.

I’ve been using A Lensbaby Tilt Transformer (http://www.lensbaby.com/lenses-composer-tt.php) with a Manual Nikon lens (Nikon 50mm f1.8 e-series) attached. When used as intended, it produces a line of focus, or can leave one half of an image in focus, and the other half completely blurred. I’ve had so much fun playing with this and I wanted to be able to do this effect with the camera as I didn’t want to use software. :-)

All these images are taken locally in Southend or Leigh.
I would have posted this yesterday but I wanted to take a few more photos to add in. So part of today involved going to Old Leigh.

You can click on a photo to be taken to it on my flickr page.

You will probably be able to tell from this blog and from my flickr page that my photography has become very much about having as little in focus as possible. Its become my thing over the last year or so and i’m pretty much addicted to “blur” and “bokeh”. I love the mystery of blur in photos and also the way I can make someone stand out just by having the rest of the image out of focus.
Maybe i’m just weird :-P

Nine months photographing Aimee

Nine months ago my friend had a baby. About 3 days after that I was there with my camera. Nine months later I still find myself photographing little Aimee. Her photos have featured lots on my Flickr, Facebook and Twitter. She’s lovely to be around and i’ve loved watching her change so much over this last year. All of these are a collection of my favourites i’ve taken. You’ll notice my editing changes during the photos. I upgraded my computer and calibrated my monitor so my colours look a lot different to me now which means my BW edits are done differently.

This was taken a few weeks after she was born ^

So I made a blog

I decided after consideration to make a blog. I can’t promise daily updates or great words of inspiration. What I want to do is post photographs i’ve taken in recent days, months, years with a bit of story behind them. I want to talk about aims I have, projects I want to try. I want to share links to others work which inspires me.

What I don’t want to do is separate my faith from my photography and i’ll aim to write about things i’ve experienced with God, things i’ve learned etc.

Since I mentioned photos, and I want to ensure this works ok, here are two recent pictures taken with my favourite tool - Lensbaby Composer.
