Dark stairs

Walking down some stairs after walking through the Pacific Grove Art Center I liked how the light changed from top to bottom. The entry way was almost completely dark with light from up above shining on the stairs as you go up. Shot with my Lensbaby and went a bit more unfocused on purpose for effect.

Piano and notes

I have a new lens...a Lensbaby Composer. Ordered it a couple of weeks ago and just got it last week. Saturday was the first chance I had to use it. I was on a student video shoot and there were two of us with DSLR cameras for taking on set stills. Since the other guy was taking regular photos I decided to go creative and use the Lensbaby.

I put up four photos and put them in a set on my Flickr if you're interested in seeing the others.

I need to put more time into practicing with it but what I like so far about it is the sense of motion you can get because of the focal blur. The shots of the kids were them in motion and with a regular lens I would have needed to slow down the shutter speed and use a tripod to get that sense of motion. Not so with this lens...

I think I may have run out of windows to post so here's a nice comfortable recliner to relax in.

Apparently I have a few window related photos...figured I do a series of them for something different.
