time is ticking away...

so it's lensbaby month and i think i'm already doomed... no clue how to get anything in focus with the sweet 35, and can't figure out how to switch the optic back to the edge 80... it's a-gonna be a looooooong month!!!

also for the 52 week dogwood thing... vision... look ahead...

Just tried it on mine. Twist the optic so it's as far out as it goes. Twist around the aperture ring anti-clockwise as far as it goes, push down and keep turning anti-clockwise. It should click and you can pull it out. Or mine did anyway! ;)
I like the dreamy effect btw.

Hi there Thank you for my push this week - I will have a go. Having looked (again) through your awesome images it was hard to find something you haven't done already however I do have 2 suggestions for you. Either a conceptual self portrait or some mirror photography. Have fun.

Yes what @humphreyhippo said.
Start with you composer straight, at f/4 or 5.6, shutter speed 1/160 or faster. Once this fells good we can move on. Make sure you calibrate your diopter.

Me thinks thou doth protest too much! I'm confident that by the end of the month you'll have cracked it big-time. Happy New Year Myra.

@summerfield actually, i happen to have an idea for a photo that would include dragging this clock out somewhere... so yeah... we drag the clocks ;p

@northy - you don't happen to be off until wednesday, are you? because i am, although it's a little bit cold, isn't it? :-)
posted January 2nd, 2018

Cool. I feel a little drunk trying to focus on that.

This is a great shot with the clock ticking away. So creative and fun.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Oh darn...I'd managed to be in denial so didn't even get it out today. Oh well! I suspect you'll end up with a great month of images! I like the message in this one.

To play is to learn, so just play and have fun this month. I don't like the changing of elements so I use a set of extension tubes with my sweet 35. I also have a pair of cheaters in my kit.

Have you considered having your "peaking level' set on high? It seems to help me a bit when I use my sweet 35.

@northy it absoutly does tick by so fast. So fast we missed watching the NY time square ball drop on T.V cause we werent paying attention to the tame last night⏳

it seems the lensbaby is very forgiving. Unlike time. Great one for the theme(s)

looks as if you've worked out lensbaby for this shot
