For those of you unfamiliar with the Edge 50, it is a selective focus optic, but instead of the typical Lensbaby sweet spot of focus, this optic, like the Edge 80, provides a slice of focus through the image. The aperture range is f/3.2 to f/22, and it can focus as close as 8 inches away from your subject.
I kept the aperture at f/3.2 for max blur, I really wanted to be able to simplify my backgrounds while walking around the yard, seeing what I could find to shoot. Here are a few samples:
It was a good morning, I am feeling more inspired and so happy to be outside shooting!
