Earlier this month, I beta tested the newest gem in the Lensbaby collection, the Scout. Scout is Lensbaby's first non-bending lens, and comes with the Fisheye optic installed. Because the lens doesn't bend like traditional Lensbaby lenses, fisheye images are always perfectly centered. The lens can focus as closely as 1/2 inch away from subjects, and has a very smooth focus collar. It works with Lensbaby's unique optic swap system, so you can change optics for different effects. I love testing new products, and this lens was no exception. It's fun, easy to use, and a great addition to the Lensbaby lineup.
Here are some of my test images, these were at f/4, which is wide open on the Scout, no aperture ring.
These were all shot at f/16 for greater Depth of Field:
I spent most of last week in Acadia shooting with some great friends. It was wonderful to relax, laugh and take in the beauty of the area. After a busy summer, a few days with no responsibilities, surrounded by amazing scenery was just what I needed. Here are a few of my favorite images from the trip.
Before he flew back to Washington, Ron Goldman was kind enough to pose for a few genuine Fisheye shots. I used the new Lensbaby Scout, it's awesome!
I definitely need to spend much more time in Acadia, the park is huge, I am already thinking about my next visit!
