Paint Phoenix 2016 (Lensbaby Edge 80)

This past weekend my husband and I went to the annual "Paint Phoenix" (2016) event. Unfortunately the weather (rather the light) was not very cooperative. The temps were in the 70's, however the sky was covered with clouds. After I took a couple of shots with my favorite 28mm lens and didn't like what I saw, I switched to my Lensbaby with the Edge 80 optic. Here are some of my favorite images from Saturday shot with the Edge 80: Painting---1-copy

The first photo in this collection has my first focus slice, and I was beside myself when I uploaded the photograph to my computer. You also might be wondering why I don't have any faces of the artist. I am very conscience regarding privacy.

Although I have had my Lensbaby for years, I started shooting with it only this past Fall. And to tell you the truth: I LOVE it. I know 'love' is a strong word, but that is the only word I can think of right now. Yes, it is challenging at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is pure awesomeness.

Since I really enjoy photographing with it, I am looking for a couple of ladies who photograph with the Lensbaby to start a monthly blog circle. If you are interested, please leave a comment below so that I can contact you with details.

Thank you for stopping by today...Until next time - keep smiling :)
