These pretty Spring Magnolias were just begging me to photograph them. Luckily I had my trusty camera with me. Unfortunately, I only had my 85mm lens and not my favorite Lensbaby. I was little upset that I didn’t have it with me but decided that i should accept challenge and shoot with the lens I had. The 85mm lens was divine. I shot at f2.8 and bumped up my ISO to about 800 to adjust for the overcast day. I edited these in two different ways, stark and a matte finish. I like both for different reasons. Which do you like better? Hope you have a groovy day!
