Summer is in full swing, and the grasses and flowers are providing some great subjects for photography. I’ve never really tried photographing these subjects before so this is a new one for me. All post-processed in Photoshop and DXo.
First – a really simple soft abstract using the plastic Lensbaby. As always with this lens, the results were pretty hit and miss, but when they’re good they’re unlike anything else.
Next one with the Helios 85mm f2 wide open – the Canon 60D’s 1/8000th of a second shutter speed is really useful in bright light at these apertures.
Back to the plastic Lensbaby and some wheat bending over in the wind towards the camera. There’s a dark line to the left which is an out of focus weed – shame I didn’t spot it.
Finally a few poppies – can’t resist them at this time of year. I saw this large patch from the car but it needed at fifty minute walk to get there from the nearest place to park. This one was with the Zuiko 50mm f1.4, one knee in a muddy puddle!
Thanks for looking – hope you like them!
I love them 😉
A beautiful set. The first one is really Intersting – the plastic lens is so cool. Love that tangle of poppies!
It’s a brilliant piece of kit – but I get too tempted to use it for everything!
All very lovely, 1 and 3 are my favs…
Great work as always Rob–must have been a fairly small aperture for that first one?
(ps–been posting more LB images of late, if you’d be interested in taking a gander.
Was planning on giving you a shout out on my Phriday Photo Gallery post this week if that’s ok with you.)
Hello Johnnycrabcakes – I’ll have a look!
