Easter Portraits and Control:

Shooting with the Lensbaby is somewhat a “leap-of-faith” at the very least you have to be able to just set your need to control every aspect of photography on the shelf.

The magic of creating an image for you is exactly that…fun it goes back to the beauty of watching a print come to life in a shallow tray of Dektol and then making refinements under the enlarger, never really knowing exactly how it is going to come out until you move it from the bath to the fixer.

The Lensbaby composer can offer some extremely sharp portraits or those that have such shallow depth-of-field that it makes the viewer uneasy.

Whether you’re photographing the children or the family pets over the Easter Holiday take the time to play and create without restrictions.  Resist the temptation to reach for the “control” you’ve place on the back shelf…at least for the day.
