Hope everyone is having a fabulous Sunday!
I ordered lesbabies yesterday and am impatiently waiting for them. Thank you all for your advice!
Some serious photographers don't like lensbabies. They pooh pooh the idea. Here is how lensbabies work. Let's say you want to take a photo of an apple. Depending on how you manipulate the lens, in the photo, the apple will be crystal clear and everything else will be a little blurry.
I like that effect. But some serious photographers think that all photos must be fully focused at all times. They don't want to embrace the blur. They find these photos, and I quote here, "nauseating".
Oh well. That's probably the same reaction Picasso got from some of his reviewers before he became accepted as an artist. I mean it looks like he was just doodling. Right?
Frankly, I don't give a rat's ass about their opinions. I enjoy photography as a hobby. I like to experiment. I like fully focused shots and blurry ones too. I simply do it for fun.
Since I write and post photos on my blog, I have a need for both. When I am writing about confusion, darkness, doubts etc. I like using blurry photos. Some of them are accidents and some planned.
I can't wait to get my lensbabies and start shooting. You'll have to judge whether you like them or not.
