My lovely friend Lisa allows me to pick her pretty pink Peonies every year. Today I was at Target and saw this turquoise vase that I thought would set them off nicely. So off I went to pick some Peonies to photograph. I thought I might show you the difference between three of the Lensbaby optics since each one has distinct qualities.
Let’s begin with the Double Glass Optic whose main feature is tack sharp center focus with radial blur. I really like the drama of this optic.
Next is the Soft Focus Optic which creates velvety soft focus. I haven’t used this optic much but I love the painterly effect on this vase of peonies.
Finally, the Edge 80 Optic with it’s slice of blur and adjustable aperture. You know I adore this optic. It hardly leaves my camera. For me this optic has the sharpness of the Double Glass and the ability to soften areas like the Soft Focus Optic all in one lens.
I really enjoy the flexibility the Lensbaby system gives me. I don’t have all of the optics…yet. Someday. I wold love to know which optic you like best. Leave a comment so I know you were here.
