Lensbaby Still Life with Paint Daubs

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with our local camera club at a lighting seminar. During the seminar we were able to put our hands on some Lensbaby Composers and a few filters.

I love Lensbaby (in the “about me” section of this blog you’ll notice it’s on my wish list).  Lensbaby is an optic system that allows photographers to be a little more creative in-camera, as opposed to creating effects in Photoshop or other software.  They’re just plain fun and addictive. There are several different optics to choose from and I want them all.

I chose to shoot a still life someone set up by a large window. In the first shot, it’s just the Composer with a soft focus filter. In the second shot, I did a little post-processing in Photoshop: first boosting saturation and vibrance, then I added the “Paint Daubs” filter. Click on each image for a larger view.

Just my idea of having some fun on a Saturday afternoon!
