365 Challenge #286 - Lensbaby & Selective Blur

My Lensbaby Composer and Fisheye Optic arrived this week, and I've had a chance to play with them tonight. Wow - the selective blur, which is the trademark Lensbaby photo look, is hard to get used to. But fun!

It's an all-manual focus affair, and you can't automatically dial the aperture up or down - that's also a manual affair whereby you use a little magnet tool supplied with each optic to drop in little discs that correspond to the aperture you want to shoot at. Manual..er, right...

Both images below use the Lensbaby Composer with the Double Glass Optic and the f/4 aperture ring. At the moment, I'm less worried about composition, and more just experimenting with the look that Lensbaby optics can create.

Methinks the Lensbaby toys will get a good workout in Tokyo!
