lensbaby stairs

shoutout to the mystery person who saw me taking pictures of the stairs and chose to walk thru the frame nonetheless :)

this is using the lensbaby sweet 35... once again, i have NO clue what's in focus... it was supposed to be the bit of stair he was walking on, but apparently not... hopefully i will get the hang of this sooner rather than later!!!
lol nothing is in focus... lensbaby seems to be a bit of a torture device lol

Tip one: Make sure you calibrate your diopter. ;)

no matter what is in focus. The out of focus all looks good, and I think it helps to accentuate the task ahead for your compliant mystery person.

I feel that the true beauty to a lensbaby is that you don't have to have a strong in focus area/region. The blur is more often than not the story as you've shown extremely well here. Fav.

Cool result!
Do you use focus peaking? I don't tend to use it when shooting, but I found it interesting to spend an afternoon just watching how the focus point moves around. It gave me a better feel for the lens.

@humphreyhippo no - i don't use focus peaking... i'm not even sure how it works on the canon or the olympus... i think i did try it on the sony and couldn't figure out how it was supposed to work... something to think about tho'... thx!

@northy On the Sony, it highlights the edges it thinks are in focus with white (actually I changed mine to yellow because white against white shirt + ice pad = bad). It was useful for me to see the focus spot move - especially with the tilting of the Lensbaby Composer. I found it didn't move across the frame quite how I thought it would.
