lensbaby velvet 85 favorites

I was given the opportunity to test Lensbaby's newest lens they had in the works.   Here is a sampling of my favorite photographs from my time with the Lensbaby Velvet 85.  I thought I had known what type of images this lens would produce but it seriously blew me away every time I shot with it.  I was able to add so much more drama to my images than a traditional lens would ever be capable of.  It allowed me to easily achieve beautiful blur and grain like that found in the vintage photographs that I love. 

All of my work with the Velvet 85 can be found in the following blog posts.

Sometimes it takes new eyes to pause and see again the beauty that was always in front of you....or in this case, a new lens.  A local hiking spot, I've seen these vistas hundreds of times in my life.  This time I wanted to see what this little part of myworld would like like through the Velvet 85.  Stopping.  Seeing.  Present. 

If the creamy, glowing effects of the Velvet 85 intrigues you, you can see more of my time with this lens in these blog posts.

more than fossils

One day in late April we took a hike to a fossil pit.  We had been there in the past and already knew that most of the fossils were long gone.  Lots of digging and dirty knees and butts and shoes still rewards us with small trinkets.  That day, I found my own kind of special treasure.  High on top of the fossil hill there is a thick stand of pine trees, shading lush moss patches and producing the most magical light.  We had our fun, we found our fossils, the girls looked for fairies, we picked flowers, and I made a huge mental note to bring some pretty little dresses the next time we go "fossil hunting". 

 

Here is what I did at the fossil pit the next time we visited.

All of the photographs in this post were created with my Lensbaby Velvet 85.  To see more of the work I have produced with this lens, check out these blog posts.
